I have an older Mac running iPhoto 09. I have a lot of pictures in there that I do not want to be seen every time I launch iPhoto. I know how to 'hide' them within iPhoto but what I would like to do is to remove them from iPhoto and put the actual .jpg file into a different folder and then hide that folder via CLI

When doing some testing moving the pictures to a folder and hiding that folder is easy. The issue I'm having is that when I delete the picture from iPhoto it deletes it from the library itself

Is it possible to delete the picture from iPhoto but still have it present in the photo folder?

IF not, what is the best suggestion for hiding the sensitive pictures from others seeing them when I launch iPhoto?

Thanks for the help
