    I imported a photo a couple days ago in iphoto. I now want to delete the file. So I deleted the file (I dragged it to the trash). But it is still showing up in iphoto. How do I fully remove the photo?

    Right click Trash in the left sidebar and click empty trash. Should work.

    Did you move it to the trash in iPhoto? Or the trash in your dock? Use the one in iPhoto.

    Also, if you tried to delete it from an album, you only deleted it from the album itself, not the database. In that case, find the photo in the corresponding "event" or "roll" depending on which version of iPhoto you are running, and delete it from there.
