i want to un-install iphoto.  it is sluggish and won't delete the trash.  I have saved all the images off line so they are protrected.  But it feels like the best thing to do (now that i have the images secured) is to wipe the slate clean and re-install the app.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Most likely you have no problem with the iPhoto application but with the library


    Saving the images is not adaquate - you need the intact iPhoto library since it contains much more than images


    what version of iPhoto do you have? How many photos do you have in the iPhoto trash?

    Well there is your problem - you need to delete photos in small batches - 100 or so


    Try turning off item counts and then emptying the iPhoto trash - there is a chance that that will work
