    Hi, I'm a PC escapee and need some help.
    I have 20gb of photos stored on a portable hard drive. I'd like to copy all of them onto my macbook pro. When I download them to iphoto they show up under EVENTS. If I drag the individual folders to ALBUMS am I using up an additional 20gb of storage space on my hard drive since it doesn't look like the EVENTS folder has changed/moved?

    No. Any photo can be in your library but also in an event or album without being duplicated. Just like a song bring in a playlist in iTunes.
