Just started using 7, and transfered all pics from external hard drive. Looks like all pics have been tripled. Wonder if there's a way to eliminate these duplicates in this library. Not too savvy on the system yet, just looking for a suggestion. Thanks!

Best check they haven't been duplicated.
Windows 7 uses a feature called Libraries, which means that you can simply feed it a bunch of folders and destinations and it will show you all the files in those folders presented as if they were all in one folder. So it's possible your library is set up as a source from your external drive as well as the the Pictures folder.

Everything you need to know and then some more about libraries (of the Windows 7 variety, not the book variety):
