Due to G5 locking up on boot up, I had to reinstall OS X by saving old op system option. Upon restart with new OS X, when starting iphoto, I get an empty iphoto libary yet, the library is not found in my home pictures folder. I need to delete this folder so I can relocate the application to open my iphoto library located on an external hard disk.

I have serched everywhere for this empty iphoto library but cannot find it.

How can I get the iphoto appication to get program to open iphoto library on external drive??

Thanks for the help

    Close iPhoto. Hold down the Option key as you launch iPhoto. The dialog asks you to find a library or create a new one. Select "Find" (or Choose, depending on the version) and navigate to the iPhoto Library folder on your external drive.

    Is the empty library folder in another User's folder, or the Shared folder? Have you tried a Finder Search?
