IPhoto Question- Library file size is doubling my actual picture folder?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

By importing all of my photos from my "pictures" folder into iPhoto, does this take double the space on the hard drive?
In other words would it be just like doubling my picture folder?

Thanks.
Your answer raises another question. If I delete all my originals, how do I revert to the original after a bad edit, or like situation?
I'm new to Mac so if these sound like stupid questions sorry.
It seems if I delete all the original pictures after an import there would also be no way to export them should, don't hit me! , I go back to a PC. (just an example)
