    hey guys

    i have just in the last few days finally received my macbook pro and am just getting used to it. i am new to mac and am finding my way through but just have a quick question whilst im sorting out my thousands of photos.

    i have copied them from an external harddrive into the pictures folder on my macbook and am now importing them into iphoto. the question i have is if copying them into iphoto copies them into the iphoto library. so should i delete the originals or not i just dont want copies of photos etc wasting space.

    seems like a bit of an obvious question but just wanted to check

    thanks guys

    Yes it copies them. Just check the size of the iPhoto Library.
