iPhoto 11 uncooperative when trying to delete photos

Ok... I have all of the photos I want to keep in a set of albums, I want to delete all of the photos in iPhoto11 that are not in an album. Then, (based on a tip about how to do this in iPhoto9) I made a smart album with the perimeters that any photo not in an album already would be in this one. When I try to take these delete these photos from this album it acts as if I did not delete them at all (instead of what I guessed it would do, deleting them from the album but not Photos library). All of these attempts yielded the result of iPhoto acting as if I did nothing: pressing the delete button when they are selected, right clicking sending to trash, dragging to iphoto trash, dragging to trash app, command+delete, option+delete, control+delete (the last 3 supposedly deleting the photos from album and Photos library in iPhoto9). Any idea how to delete the photos in the album from Photos library -- or any idea at all how to delete all the photos in iphoto11 photos library that are not in any albums. - - - Many thanks!
