    When I import a photo in iPhoto, it goes to the iPhoto gallery. When I click on it in my home/pictures , it goes straight into iPhoto. Is there a place where those pictures go like itunes where they're all organized in different folders depending on album, etc...? I have the originals in different places but I don't want to keep doubles all over the computer.

    After importing to iPhoto, can I delete the original? If let's say I want to upload 2-3 on an eBay listing, where can I find the files?

    Your photos are in the iPhoto library in finder. Do not go there! Stay out of that library in finder. You will (not might, WILL) corrupt and/or lose photos if you muck about with them in finder. Do anything and everything to/with your photos from within the app. Export or drag-n-drop photos to the desktop for use with eBay, MySpace, etc.

    Once you have imported your originasl (from "all over the computer") you can delete those files - leaving the ones in iPhoto. iPhoto organizes them like iTunes does.
