Emptying the trash in iPhoto!

I had a tip previously about emptying the Finder trash with the keyboard shortcut "Command - Shift - Backspace". It is really fast when you are cleaning up files and folders in the Finder. What you might not have noticed is that the same can be done in iPhoto. iPhoto actually has its own trash where deleted pictures end up. I guess I just wasn't used to it, but the pictures simply accumulated there and I always forgot to empty it. I find the "Command - Shift - Backspace" much easier to do after deleting a bunch of pictures.

I have uploaded a few protected files from my digital camera onto my MacBook, and although I can move them to the the trash I cannot delete them. I have tried command-shift-delete but nothing I do will completely delete them.

Don't forget to do the same in iMovie where huge amounts of disk space can also be eaten up with un-emptied trash cans full of unwanted video clips
