Was iPhoto running during these backups? It is reported that TM does not backup the iPHoto library when iPhoto is running

I cannot say for certian but it is highly likley that YES, when the person finished editing they just closed the lid of the computer and didn't actually quit iPhoto. So would this explain why there are fragmenst of them in the backup (i.e. Events, keywords, thumbnails, etc.) but not the actual image files? Any way I can at least save the extremely low res thumbnail versions?
I'm also going to try Data Rescue on the camera memory card to try and recover them that way.

Although this isn't really a solution to the iPhoto problem, the net result is I was able to recover the pics via the "deleted" CF card.
Will make a note to always ensure iPhoto is closed once importing/editing etc. is comleted.
