    Do I need to have my photos in a separate directory if I use iPhoto?

    At the moment I have my pics in a folder, then I've also got them in my iPhoto folder, is this necessary, or can I just deleted my pics and let iPhorto take care of them all?

    No - so long as you're
    a - using iPhoto 5 or earlier in which case it's manging your photos
    b - using iPhoto 6 but have selected to have iPhoto managing your photos.

    One caveat though - it is always worthwhile having a backup copy of your photos (or iPhoto library) just in case the iPhoto library gets corrupted.
