I was browsing images in iPhoto recently, but I couldn't find photos that were previously in the library. I have looked in to the package contents, and the files actually appear to be present, but no trace in iPhoto (not in albums where the photos were used or various places in the library). I've tried the search function too, but it's not finding the image either. I'm using a brand new MBP and hence the latest iPhoto also.


The iPhoto library was imported using my Time Capsule from an iMac where iPhoto kept crashing... so it's possible there were issues with the underlying database.


Any ideas what could be causing this and how to resolve would be much appreaciated.

MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
