But my problem is that the 2 I want might be interspersed in the 50 in various places. So then I have to go through and make sure that I don't accidently delete the ones I want. Kind of a slow process that I want to avoid.
I think I read where this is where the rating comes into play. Rate the keepers with 1 and non-keepers with 0 and then delete the 0's. I'm going to give it a try anyway.

Not sure what this means. The two you want to keep can only be in two places in the 50. If I have 50 images and I want to keep 2 I can easily find those two and not select them, or flag the two I want to keep and just display the unflaged images. Or flag the 48 and collect those.
I think you're getting confused with the parts of Aperture and how they work together. In you first post you mentioned putting the image you want to keep into a 'folder of keepers' This is not correct, folders don't hold images. Images are in projects. Every original has to be in a project and in only one project. Albums can be used to organize the images but the images are still in the project.
If you were to describe your organization perhaps we could offer some suggestions.
Message was edited by: Frank Caggiano -BTW did you finally get a legit copy of Aperture or is this still what you copied from the torrent site?
You could rate the "non-keepers" with "Reject" - press the "9" key to give that rating. That will send your non-keepers to the "rejected" album. You can then delete all rejected images at once by selecting them in the "Rejected" album..

Albums, folders, I misspoke. I understand the basic workings. What I was looking for was exactly what leonieDF outlined.
Either way, I have to find a way that works for me and it appears that there can be a few methods. I'm just getting tired of sitting here at this stupid thing for the last two days, since YES I did PURCHASE Aperture 3 through the normal channels. But in doing that I also had to upgrade to mountain lion, which for me was a real pain in the #&%!! I'm really not fond of it but it was necessary to get Aperture 3.
