    So I've loaded some pics on my MPB.
    When I go to view my pics, I use iPhoto.

    Now, if I go to delete a pic on iPhoto, will the photo be deleted completely
    or only deleted from iPhoto? Do I have to find the picture on my hard drive
    and delete it from there as well?

    Thanks.

    It will be deleted from the computer as well, unless you manage the picture files yourself.

    But deleting it from an Album won't do it
    You need to delete it from the Library

    Library as in what, what is the path I am looking for?
    User/Library?


    Right now if I click info on a picture, the path it leads me to is the iPhoto library.

    The iPhoto library is managed in the iPhoto software, it's under Photos (below the Events).

    iPhoto also uses events to organize pictures, but you can delete pictures from as many events as you like, but they are still in the library.

    And please don't delete anything from Users/You/Library, unless you really know what you delete.
