Every time I open iPhoto this happens. I think lost archives of one photo and now I get a message coming up on the screen saying 'iPhoto library found a photo that was not imported' 'Would you like to import it?' Whether I say yes or no another message comes up 'the photoes are in the pictures/iphoto Library Recovered photos_' then it is filed as folders in iphotos. When I open them in Finder 'show info', they are locked. It is really annoying.

    Go to your Pictures Folder and find the iPhoto Library there. Right (or Control-) Click on the icon and select 'Show Package Contents'. A finder window will open with the Library exposed.

    Look there for a Folder called 'Import' or 'Importing'.

    Drag it to the Desktop. *Make no other changes*.

    Start iPhoto. Does that help?

    If it does then look inside that folder on your desktop. Does it contain anything you want? If not you can trash the folder.

    the contents folder contains the following, CodeResources, Info.Plist,PkgInfo,version.plist, and the folders Frameworks, MacOs, NetServices, Plugins, Resources. No folder called
    import or importing? Am I missing something?

    As I said above:

    *Go to your Pictures Folder and find the iPhoto Library there...*


    You've gone to your Applications Folder and found the iPhoto application.
