There is a picture in my iPhoto that I cannot get to. I can only see it when I want to upload a picture or attach it in a mail. Other than that I can't get to it in iPhoto to delete it or edit it. I have tried everything and am lost as to what else to try. Its only one picture out of the many I have stored and more frustrating than anything as to why this picture appears to be hiddin in iPhoto but visible for a upload. Can anyone help me please?

    Check here -

    Home folder> Pictures > iPhoto Library

    Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the package and select 'show package contents'

    In the new window -

    Contents > Originals > {at this point there'll be a series of folders, probably by year. In each will be other folders with dates etc. - eventually you'll get to the actual photo originals}

     

    Might take a while to find the one you're looking for!

    The Home folder is your own user folder - the one with the little house!

     

    Right click is also achieved by Ctrl-click. If you have it enabled a two-finger tap on the trackpad will also invoke the context menu.
