If I move a photo from iPhoto to the desktop, and then trash, is the original still saved in the library?

Yes.

You can't move a photo from iPhoto out of the library simply by dragging it. It'll be a copy, therefore deleting it from the desktop will not remove the original from the iPhoto library.

If you moved it, no.
If you copied it, yes.

It really depends how you 'moved' it.
