    This is the only part of the random collection of words you used that I understand.:confused: I hope English is a second language.

    ok since you cant read my "Random" words ill put a comma and period after every word :rolleyes:
    Ok so in my iphoto library there is alot of pictures. I put all the pictures into albums with suitable names, but, when i want to delete the photos from the library it deletes the photo in the album. Is there anyway of deleting the photos from the library without deleting the ones in the albums?

    And... English is my first language im just a lazy ass... :p

    Basically no. The Library is like the volume your album reads from, so if it isn't in the library, it cannot be in the album.

    If I am understanding this correctly, what you are trying to do is keep your photos in album, but delete the Library entirely?

    I don't believe that you can do that. The Library is the place where everything is stored, and albums are merely an place to organize them. They have to stay in the Library.

    If you are using iPhoto '08, you can view your Library in Events View, rather than just all of your photos at once. I use that, and it helps keep everything organized by day, or trip, or whatever. Much nicer than the whole Library or Rolls, in my opinion.
