    Hallo,

    I deleted an album accidentally, and now re-importing that album. When i do this iPhoto says that there are duplicate photos. These photos can be found under 'faces' and 'locations' but the album to which they belong no longer exists. I selected import despite duplicates, and now i have two copies of these photos in the 'faces' and 'locations' view.

    How can i delete one copy of these?

    Are they in the iPhoto Trash?

    If not, you can find these photos in your Pictures Folder. Then a right-click on the iPhoto Library file and select Show Package Contents.

    They weren't in the iPhoto trash. I tried viewing the iPhoto Library package contents, but the photos were all ordered by date rather than by album name.

    I've managed to sort it out, i think; in the 'Events' view i merged the duplicate galleries, viewed the merged gallery, highlighted all the pics, and then 'cut' them.
