    You could just select them in iPhoto and drag them to the hard drive icon/folder. If you have RAW shots in iPhoto the copies will be jPEG though (useful and easy way to make jpeg copies of RAW)

    A quick way of bulk copying is to go to Home/pictures and right click on the iPhoto icon. Then select Show Package Contents. In the new window select Originals and drill down to the pics you want, then copy and paste.
