    Hi All,

    I am trying to gain more space back on my imac (20", 2GHz, 10.6.8). I was wondering if I imported iPhoto thumnails to iMovie, can I then delete the video in iPhoto?

    Thanks,

    CFS

    No. The thumbnail in iMovie is a link to the video file in iPhoto. If you delete in iPhoto, the video will no longer be available to iMovie.
