Is there a way to put a photo into the trash when working from al album?  It seems cumbersome to flag the photo and then go back to the events to trash it.  Also is there a difference between deleting a photo with the delete key and dragging a photo to the trash?

    Deleting Photos from an iPhoto Library:

     

    1 - from an Event or the Photos mode: select the photo(s) and use the Delete key to move the photos to the trash bin. Then empty the iPhoto Trash bin as follows:

    2 - from an album, smart album, book, slideshow, card, etc.: select the photo(s) and use the key combination of Command+Option+Delete to move the photos to the trash bin.  Then empty the trash bin as above.

     

    NOTE: deleting a photo from an album, slideshow, book, etc., with only the Delete key only deletes that photo from that item. Deleting a photo from an Event deletes ALL occurances of that photo in the library.

    If the delete key is used in the Event to delete the photo, will it still appear in the trash or must the photo be dragged into the trash to appear there?  It seems not to be in the trash if I use the delete key.

    There is no difference between using the delete key and dragging to the trash
