I connected my camera to iPhoto yesterday and chose NOT to import two photos which are already i my gallery. Now every time I open iPhoto it greets me with -

"A photo has been found in the iPhoto Library that was not imported. Would you like to import it?"

I keeps selecting no but it gives returning with -

"The photo has been placed in the folder /Users/XXXXX/Pictures/iPhoto Library/Recovered Photos_12"

And the folder number is going up and up...

How do I stop iPhoto from doing this?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.3), iPhoto

    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.
