I have made a number of Albums and Smart Albums in my iPhoto 11 on my MacBook Pro. I am finding it very difficult to manage them due to a few quirky things they do. When I create a new Album, it immediately loads it with whatever I was looking at before. I finally figured this out and will have to watch carefully where mouse was last sitting when I select File/New Album. But when trying to clear out all the wrong photos from my new albums, I found that they were totally deleted. I had read many times that deleting photos from albums would not delete the original photo from its Event. I am now afraid to clean up my albums because important photos wind up in the trash. Why would this be happening? Thanks.
