Removing Photos from iPhoto

Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.

If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.

If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...

If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.

If you’re feeling a yearning for burning, take note: Roxio has released Toast Titanium 11, a substantial upgrade to its software for burning optical discs. Toast 11 sports a wholly redesigned interface with refined workflows, and includes built-in video tutorials to explain various features. New features include support for recording to multiple drives simultaneously, easier auto-updating, an option to save custom video profiles, Internet audio and video capture, disc spanning, dual-platform compatible disc creation, TiVo-to-Go support, and built-in support for uploading directly to YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook. Also new is VideoBoost, which Roxio says will dramatically speed up H.264 video encoding. ($99.99 new, $79.99 with $20 mail-in rebate, variable upgrade pricing)
