Photo Storage says 20gb but I hardly have any photos?

Hi there, first post so bear with me...

When I go to 'About this Mac' and then 'Storage'. It tells me I have 18.97gb of photos. I have cleared my iphoto album and have made a photo folder on the desktop of any I want to keep which totals less than 1gb of photos. When I click on photos on the finder sidebar there are no photos there. Trash is clear.

Can anyone explain the discrepancy?

It also says I have 2.16gb of audio when I have no music on this mac as I use Spotify and any old music I have is on an external hd...

Thanks for your help!

Apologies if you are way past this suggestion but maybe you put photos in the trash but haven't emptied the trash yet?

I no longer have iPhoto to check but doesn't it have its own trash separate from the system Trash?

Video can eat up a lot of storage space quickly.

OmniDiskSweeper, a free program, can search you drive and indicate large files and folders. There are other, similar applications.

Let us know how you solve this,
