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.

I watched this with great interest. The questions were great... as I am about the same age... and am getting ready to set up my "new" gen.3 iPad. I also have the new Apple TV and wish that all video Podcasts were at least 720p or 1080p. Now that I have all the latest (Apple) gadgets and watch most of my "TV" through iTunes and the internet (although I have DirecTV Premium) I am mostly looking for "Hi-Def" video. Thanks for a great show. Perhaps in the future they can be a little higher video quality.
