Can I stop Software Update from constantly suggesting I install new Digital Camera RAW compatibility updates?
Each one is quite large (so I don't install them), but it's a nuisance always seeing the update notifications. Further, I'd love to re-install them to get that space back on my SSD if I could.
The only digital camera I own is my iPhone...
My machine is a 2010 MBA C2D running 10.6.8.

From the Software Update application's "Update" menu, you can select "Ignore Update", which will remove it from the suggestions. You'll still see new ones, however.

That's excellent Theseus, thank you. :clap:
How can I delete the previous updates I installed to get back some storage space?

Actually the actual needed RAW files from the 'Digital Camera RAW compatibility updates' are actually quite tiny and the whole thing with all the extra included stuff (surplus .lproj language folders etc.) probably aren't much bigger than about 20+ MB.
Even so, even with my 1TB WD drive, I still use Monolingual to purge all the surplus stuff (Languages, keyboards and code) that nearly all updates contain. But it's best to read the manual to use it properly and some software such as MS Office '08 and later and most semi-recent to recent Adobe software shouldn't be touched.
If you've never run "Monolingual", one can often remove 2-4GB or more and that's a lot, especially if one is using any SSD and its expensive real estate. ;)
PS: It's a LOT safer than some of the other cleansing software out there which can do some serious corruption.
