    I thought that if you edit a picture in a FOLDER, ie I turn it to black and white, the original will always remain in the top complete library.

    In my one, I edit in Folder and it changes the headline picture in the Library.

    Can anyone shed a little light, is it a preference thing????

    It's not a separate picture just because you put it in another folder, the images in your folders act like aliases (shortcuts) to the original image in your overall picture library. If you want to edit a picture and also keep the original in your library, then just duplicate the picture first before you start editing which I believe is in the Edit menu. (or you can duplicate the edited version later and then tell iPhoto to revert one of the duplicates back to the original unedited photo)
