    So i upgraded and started the new Photos App. All my photos show up on the new Photos app just fine.

    One thing I noticed is when I goto User\Pictures\ I see 2 Libraries now.

    1 is called iPhoto Library which is about 12GB
    the 2nd is Photos Library, which is about 10GB.

    Now that i'm on Photos is it ok to delete the iphoto Library file?

    So if I delete the iPhoto it won't screw up my Photos Library ?
