Alright well I have a couple questions about something that most people would think would be simple but I'm having trouble getting iPhoto to cooperate. Alright well i have 18,000 iPhoto pics which i know 40-50% are duplicates. I can waste alot of your time explaining(imported 2 times, titling different) why i have so many or i could just ask the question, ok so here it goes. I have different rolls of film in iPhoto that contain the same picture. So for instance roll 128 has 200 pictures in it, while roll 129 has 150 however 75 of those pictures are the same, but since they were not imported by iPhoto together this makes it very difficult to see images side by side in the thumbnail view. I was wondering if anyone knows a way to combine rolls possibly this would save me SO much time. I'm getting the new iPod so I kinda gotta start cleanin up this library now, i have been dreading this daunting task for month, I just wanna gain access to my pictures again!!!! Edit: Ok so i tried moving everything to sort by date and this puts images right next to each other since they have the same creation date, this should save alot of time, still however does anyone know of something i can do to allow iPhoto to remove all dup's??? Edit x2:Is there a way that I can delete the original when deleting the photo? For some reason after i completely organized the 10K pics i had. I exported them to disks and to my external HD. After importing the problem i had with the dup's occured from all of the originals i had from resizing and froms ones i deleted. I understand this is a fail-safe for people who delete photos but then really want them, but guess what if i delete them i want them gone forever, anyone know how to delete originals for good through iPhoto?
