Open the iPhoto application. This is usually accessed through the iPhoto icon on your dock.
Click on iPhoto on the source toolbar. From there select "Empty Trash." The keyboard shortcut for this is the Up arrow, Command (or Apple) key and Delete.
You will receive a warning that asks if you want to delete the photos permanently. If you choose yes, you cannot undo the action. To continue, click the "OK" tab.
Close out of iPhoto if you are done organizing your pictures or proceed to the next step in your iPhoto experience. Your iPhoto trash is now emptied.
