    this is driving me crazy, how can i delete photo's while im browsing through albums instead of going to the Photos windows and find the file.
    also is it possible to automate/script delete all the non-albumed files?

    It's a safety feature, a bit like music tracks in iTunes playlists. The photos/tracks aren't actually in the album/playlist, it's just a link to the picture/track. If you could delete direct from albums then there is the chance of deleting photos from the main iPhoto library by mistake. :mad:

    CMD-Del deletes the photo from the album.

    ALT-CMD-Del deletes the photo from the photo library and moves it to the trash. :)

    Exactly. And you can circumvent it the same way as in iTunes.
