For some reason all the images that come with software have become part of my iPhoto library. How do I get them out, without removing them from my imac.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    Unless you've set iPhoto to NOT copy photos into your library, they are merely copies. This happens when you accidentally drag a folder containing an application or something else with image files. iPhoto imports EVERYTHING in the folder, including icons and button graphics in an application, for example.

    Ctrl-Click on one of the files and choose Show File. If it shows up in your iPhoto Library, with an unitalicized name, it is a copy.

    Don't delete the file that Show File shows you. Go back to iPhoto and delete it from there. The copy within your library will be deleted - it won't disappear from your original software.

    But I'm talking about all the images that come with software. Like the logo photo for my flashdrive or the google bar.
