Maybe I'm going slightly mad, but I can't find where to empty the trash.(nothing in the online help I can find either)

Can anyone please help?

    Show Rejected -> Move rejected to trash

    iMovie allows you to mark clips as rejected. When you move rejected clips to Trash, they go into the Mac's Trash at the bottom right of your dock.

    Thanks everyone for answering, but hasn't quite got to the root of my problem.

    Yes, I can see how that works with clips in an event: I reject them so they are in iMovie's trash, then when I view rejected and "move to trash", they go into the actual computer's trash.

    But this doesn't seem to work with stills deleted from a project, which is where I'm trying to do it.

    If I delete a still clip from the project, and then go to show rejected and there is nothing there.

    Howver The still clip is visible in my project if I go into the finder, so I can delete it from there, but this seems to be a bit of a palaver, I would think I should be able to do this in iMovie.

    mmmm Must be permissions or caches. If I delete photos they are gone.

    Pete - You just delete the still in the project, everything related to rejected is for video.

    Thanks, but in this case I don't want to delete the project, just some stills from the project.

    So far the only way I've found to do that is from the finder "show package contents". I thoght I should be able to do it from within iMovie.
