I have merged two iphoto libraries and moved it to an external HD.


One of the libraries had my photo's that are located in my pictures subfolder in my Home folder on my macbook. The library is now in a EHD that is connected to my time capsule.


Can I now delete the files in my pictures folder on my internal HD? I have linked aperture to the new iphoto library on EHD but when I right click on a picture and ask to show in finder, it takes me to the files in my pictures folder.


I want to free up the space on my macbook but do not want to lose the files without making sure they are on EHD.





Aperture 3, iOS 6.1
