My iphoto library is 250 gb and I have photos that show up my documents folder and in other folders.  I have a 500gb hard drive that is full, I am tring to free up space on and I can't seem to make any progress.

By default when you import photos ot the iPhoto library they are copied and you can delete the soruce photos (be sure the iPhoto preferenced to "copy imported items to the iPhoto library has not been unchecked)

 

And be sure to aways have a good backup - without one you will lose your photos sooner or later

 

Probably the solution is to get a larger hard drive or an external hard drive and run your iPhoto library on it
