HELP! iPhoto app disappeared :-(
Posted by: kap
Date: December 11, 2005 04:04PM
I tried the search. Found a folder called iPhoto in the Library directory but the app itself is not in Applications dir. Where else can I look for it? I know I did not remove the app. Could the latest OS update took iPhoto out inadvertently?

Did you do a spotlight search? command-space and type in iphoto. I'm on this fugly PeeCee or I would look for the exact path of mine. If you don't have spotlight then I'm sorry I wasted your time ;)

iPhoto.app should be in your Applications folder.

Did you check your Trash?

pinion,
opps, I do have Spotlight (G4 DVI power - 10.4.3). There is a folder called iPhoto; it's not the app.

JJ_TKOB,
Not in the Applications folder nor the Trash :-(

Does it mean I'll have to reinstall the OS?

You can just reinstall iPhoto. If after reinstall, iPhoto can't find your old iPhoto library, you can point it to the right directory.

Have you opened the folder? Are your pics in there, or what?

Have you tried opening a photo? You might have accidentally deleted the name and it will still open the pic. Worth a try.

rgG,
Within the iPhoto folder is this 'Import.Mac Photo Album into iPhoto.workflow' file and nothing else.

iaJim,
All of my pictures open to Preview.

Sounds like it's gone. I guess you'll have to reinstall iPhoto. I'm like you though, I wonder where it went.

Download Tinkertool (free), and open it. Make hidden folders visible. Then use Spotlight. If you can't find it then, reinstall the OS.
