I opened Iphoto and it can find my library, this is thousands of photos.  Please any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is there a library in your Pictures Folder?

    Did you solve this problem? I too have lost thousands of pictures. I do have a library in my pictures folder but it won't upload.

    Well if there's a library in the Pictures Folder then you probably haven't lost your photos.


    Remember: we cannot see your machine. There are 9 different versions of iPhoto and they run on 8 different versions of the Operating System. The tricks and tips for dealing with issues vary depending on the version of iPhoto and the version of the OS.  So to get help you need to give as much information as you can. Basic things like :



    - What version of iPhoto.

    - What version of the Operating System.

    - Details. As full a description of the problem as you can. For instance: 'iPhoto won't export' is best explained by describing how you are trying to export, and so on.

    - History: Is this going on long? Has anything been installed or deleted?

    - Are there error messages?

    - What steps have you tried already to solve the issue.

    - Anything unusual about your set up? Or how you use iPhoto?


    Anything else you can think of that might help someone understand the problem you have.
