I have a whole bunch of image icons stuck inside of my recent pictures tab in my login pictures box for Mountain Lion. I was looking to clean it out, but I can't seem to delete them through the methods I have used. I tried using a keyboard shortcut, dragging the recents to the trash, and tried to find them through the Finder. Does anyone happen to know where Mountain Lion stores these files? I know they used to be in the iChat folder until they got rid of iChat for the most part.


On OS X 10.6.x you can find them under:

~/Library/Images/iChat Recent Pictures

as tiff files…

I guess you have to edit the Recents.plist other than delete the pictures…
