I have a Apple Macintosh running OSX 10.6.8. I have used iphoto since I bought my computer. I can't find my pictures - this happened once before and all I did was a "search" but that isn't working this time. What can I do to recover these images, and what locations and what tools should I be looking at to recover these images?
Your iPhoto Library, which contains photos stored in iPhoto, is located in your Pictures folder. If you are using a newer version of iPhoto, you will need to right-click on the iPhoto Library and select Show Package Contents to view the files.
If you have trouble finding it, this guide on moving the iPhoto library also has instructions on finding it.
