iPhoto has always saved the files as standard files. It has also
always made a copy of the file and then only saved modifications to
the second, leaving the original pristine.
What's cool about Aperture (Apple's professional photo management
application), is that it does not make a copy. It instead stores all
of the edits/changes as a mathematical entry in a database, giving
you the same safety of pristine digital negatives, but not the store
bulk of multiple files.
