    Hi I have messed around ...too much... with my library I have now managed to have multiple copies of all my photos 4500 in total. How and what is the fastest way to get rid of multiple photos and how do I delete the library and start again Cheers

    You could try playing with some of iPhoto's hidden tools. (load the app then IMMEDIATELY press and hold Apple+Option... it will give you options to rebuild the library and such) You might have some luck with that... although I doubt it.

    You might need to search around for an AppleScript that will ditch photos with the same exact date on them or something.

    Go and have a look through the discussion boards on apple.com under support.

    There's an iPhoto 4 and 5 board which have lots of help on problems with links to scriptos. You may find your answer there.
