    I am new to Mac, and am trying to figure out iPhoto. I've noticed that deleting a picture from iPhoto does not delete it from my computer. Is there a way to sync it so that I don't have to delete a picture from iPhoto and then have to go in to My Pictures and delete it again????

    Also, sometimes I need to resize a picture and I haven't figured out how to do it on iPhoto.

    Thanks,

    Try emptying your iPhoto trash. Its underneath all your Albums.

    Go to Share, Export... and choose File Export and choose where to save the resized photos. (You can highlight more than one at a time by holding Command as you click.) There shouldn't be a need to resize the photos in iPhoto itself, it wants to keep a full resolution photo. Relax and let iPhoto take care of your library. There no need to go poking around in the folder structure. Its not Windows.
