    iPhoto's Question
    I have an iMac with iPhoto 11. I copied a folder called pictures to my pictures directory. Then I opened iPhoto and chose import photos. Now that iPhoto imported these photos, can I delete the folder that I created with the original photos ?

    Yes, you can delete the folder in your pictures directory.
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    Unless you want to keep them as a backup outside of iPhoto.
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.

    Only if you have the Copy To iPhoto Library option ticked in iPhoto>Preferences>Advanced
