My iPhoto library grew to multiple Gig after adding a number of photos. I tried deleting all but one or two photos in the library but this doesn't reduce the size of the library file. Is there any way to reduce the size of this file?

    The Library is not a File, it's a Package, which is a Folder that looks like a file.

    I tried deleting all but one or two photos

    How? Put them in the iPhoto Trash +and empty it+ will work for default libraries.
