Deleting the photos app on mac

I want to get rid of the photos app. What will happen if I delete the app? Will all of my photos be visible in iphoto library?

Favor from:

iPhoto cannot open a Photos Library.

If you want to transfer your photos from Photos to iPhoto, export them from Photos and import them to iPhoto.

Deleting the Photos.app will accomplish nothing. Photos is deeply integrated with the system and installed as part of the system. Other applications might rely on its presence, and it needs nearly no storage. The size is just roughly 50MB, just the size of a large RAW photo, compared to the 1.7 GB of iPhoto. Just ignore Photos, it is not compulsary to use it. You can use iPhoto 9.6.1 with Yosemite.
