I have recently deleted photos from my mac that I wish to recover. Is there any possible way to do that?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.7)

    Max, Welcome to the discussion area!

    Are you using OS 10.5's Time Machine? If so you can use that and go back to a previous backup to get the pictures.

    Did you look in the trash can?

    You should stop using the machine.
