Empty iPhoto trash?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I'm trying to empty the trash (with 18,000+ photo's) and when I try it locks up?

Is there a folder or something in the system / library that I can trash to get around this?

Or how can I empty the trash? I've tried holding the option key down with no luck.

    It sounds like you can see the right (control) click "Empty Trash" menu...

    so are you sure you're giving it enough time?... to "empty" 18,000 items is going to take some time... longer on older computers... I'm just guessing ... but I'd expect that to take a few MINUTES on my G4.

    Hi. That's just what is was. I clicked on empty trash, and when I launched Force Quit, it was highlighted as "Not responding", but I got a phone call that took 5-6 minutes, and when I got back to my computer, it had empty.

    So it was just a matter of time to empty.
