First scan your storage media where you lost your photos.

Second analyze the the available data for recovering.

Third recover the lost photos, videos, audios and other lost data.

Fourth restore the lost data to the specific location wherever you want.

Without backup, you can still recover deleted photos.🙂

With expense, difficulty and no guarantee of success. But good luck anyway:


Use a file recovery utility like File Salvage - you can download a free trial and it will scan the disk for you and tell you with might be recoverable. Actual recovery will require that you purchase the app. There may be many files with the same or similar names. Always recover the largest file size.


There are other such apps. Search on Macupdate or the App Store

Note that there's a large inference there between your Second and Third steps, and that's the notion that the data is recoverable and hasn't been overwritten.


So, perhaps you might want to amend your last line: Without backup you can still recover deleted photos as long as they have not been overwritten by something else.

Yes, but as a general rule we avoid suggesting apps that persistently try and spam the forum, and which are typically ripped off from from open source and other alternatives.

Yes, If you had backed up your Mac Pro before the deletion, then you can restore your photos from the backup file. If you haven't backed up yet, there is little chance for you to get these deleted photos backup. Or you can search in Google 'recover deleted photos from Mac Pro' for solutions as well.

Yes, but use a professionally developed app and not a rip off one like the two you quote. As a spammer for this company, you of course, know that both of these apps are the same just branded differently. They both rip off established open source or commercial developers so don't use them.

if you delete a pic from iphoto, it falls into your macs trash bin. Then if you delete it from this ( "main" ) trash bin, it's still on your hard disk, but is now allowed to be "overwritten" by the computer. This is why if you want to "bring back" that pic, it has to be done very shortly after that last delete. A few hours of work on the computer, and the file will have been, at least partly, overwritten, and the best of "retrieving softwares" won't bring it back. This is why kellygreen's "without backup, you can still recover deleted photos" is a horrendous concept: it can work in very, very limited cases, and in a very, very limited time frame !If you value your pictures, take the appropriate time to get info on how to properly "back them up" !
