Am I safe deleting Aperture?

P-P-S-S

I have both Aperture 3.2.4 and iPhoto 09 in my iMac. I haven't been using Aperture that often at all so I'm thinking of deleting it in order to save a good 25gb of space. However I remember that once I downloaded some photos from my camera to my desktop and from there I dropped the folder straight on Aperture. I am not sure which photos they were though. Would those photos have been automatically copied to the iPhoto library as well or not? Is there a way to make sure that ALL photos are on both libraries before I delete Aperture?

Short answer, no. You are not safe. Unless you are on the latest versions and have a unified library they are separate.

I would open the aperture library through import in iPhoto and copy the photos to their own event. Then just delete the aperture library. I would leave the aperture app that is much much smaller.

The problem is that I don't know which photos they are:( Not sure if there is a way of finding out?

As I said, the aforementioned procedure will ensure the photos in Aperture are in their own event in iPhoto...Then you just have to search in one application...
