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 purchased iPhoto through the app store, you can get the upgrade only through the app store. Software update will not show the update, and if you download the update from Apple's download web site, you will be prevented from installing it.

Ooo, good point - we're going to have to keep that in mind going forward.
Also, if you bought it from the App Store, its actually a 727 MB update as the whole app must be downloaded again (due to the digital signature). Apple need to fix this if the App Store is going to play an ever bigger role....
