Hi, I have about 300 photos that I imported to iPhoto last year that are not showing up in iPhoto.  When I search for the individual files in Spotlight I find them (in the iPhoto Library within one of the dated Masters files).  It looks like they were all part of the same import that didn't work.  Any ideas what may have happened.  Is there a way to "reimport" them?


Thanks for the help!

iPhoto '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    What does not showing up mean? Are they just not there? do they have dotted outlines? Are they black images? do they have a white triangle with an ! on a black background?

    Doesn't show up in the interface at all.  I only realized they were missing when I checked my iPhone pictures against iPhoto and realized that there were pictures missing.  I even ran the iPhoto database rebuild and some of the other diagnostics that suggested they might find these type of situations.  It actually found a few but I still have the 300 or so I reference above. Any idea what might be going on?
