I'm trying to manually identify and delete duplicates in my library. I'd hoped to simplify the task (my library has 10,000 photos) by moving groups of photos from specific events into a folder, identify the the duplicates, and then delete them.


Is it possible to delete photos FROM IPHOTO from within folders? I know the default is to delete the photos from the folder and have them remain in the library, but deleting them from within folders would make a cumbersome process much, much easier.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7), mid-2011 i5
