    Hi Canadian Beaver Tail!


    You may want to try restoring the photo in iPhoto, using the instructions suggested in the following article:


    iPhoto '11: Delete or restore a photo


    To restore a deleted photo:

    • If you haven’t yet emptied the iPhoto Trash, do the following:
      1. Select Trash in the Source list.S140_trashicon.png
      2. Select the photo you want to restore.
      3. Choose Photos > “Restore to Photo Library.”You can also drag the item out of the Trash into an empty part of the Source list.
    • If you use Time Machine to back up your computer, you can recover a photo, an Event, a folder, an album, a project (such as a book, card, or calendar), or a slideshow even if you deleted it from the library and emptied it from the Trash.To restore photos, quit iPhoto, open the folder containing your iPhoto library, and then open Time Machine.To open Time Machine, click its icon in the Dock, or click the Time Machine icon in the menu bar and choose Enter Time Machine.For more information on using Time Machine, see the topics in Help Center. In the Finder, choose Help > Help Center, and then search for “Time Machine.”

    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities!
