So I wanted to finally organise my digital photo library and I have decided to use iPhoto, just had a few questions. Once I import my whole photo collection into iPhoto, is it safe to delete all my photos as they will be stored in the iPhoto Library? If I ever decide to stop using iPhoto, how do I get them back to normal files in folders, if this is possible, how will they then be stored? In the folders created in iPhoto or just in one folder as a huge mess? If I wanted to send a photo to a friend, can I do this straight from within my iPhoto Library? Even if my friend doesn't use iPhoto? Or would I have to somehow extract that one photo from the library? If that's even possible? If I decide to start using a different program like Aperture (my belief is Aperture is just a beefed up iPhoto) is it as simple as just importing my whole iPhoto library and off I go? Thanks in advance for any replies and sorry if these questions have been answered before.
