I have tried to remove all of my photos from iPhoto. In iPhoto (while in the "photos" view) I selected all of the photos and put them in the iPhoto trash and then emptied the iPhoto trash. I thought that took care of it... they do NOT show up in any of the views ("events", "photos", "faces", "places"). However, when I go to my Finder and select "Pictures", the size of my iPhoto Library is 3.27GB. So I am assuming that they are still there somewhere... but where... and why? Thanks!
