    I'm having an issue where I'm deleting photos out of my iPhoto Library, and then having some reappear in the Library. Any indication of why this might be, and any fixes suggested? When I realized what was happening, I emptied the iPhoto trash and Finder trash, but I don't know what affect this had as I wasn't able to track which images were being re-added.

    I'm doing a massive library cleanup (so far have deleted 35 gigs out of a 190GB Library to prep for new iMac). Running a 24" Late 2006 iMac.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Launch iPhoto while holding down option + command. You'll get a list of repair activities to perform. I am just guessing, but your file permissions might be messed up, so choose the repair permission one first. I had the same problem you did, and this cleared it up. You might also want to pick the other options to repair your library and have it find all the pictures you think you deleted, but didn't actually delete.
