    i did a clean install of tiger and moved everything to another hd but apparently one folder that was in my Pictures folder didnt transfer. I'm screwed arent I. It was my photography folder with every picture I've ever taken with my new camera

    i doubt he did


    if you are missing the actually picture files, you are fucked, BUT you can do this

    SPOTLIGHT>*


    use spotlight on the "iphoto library" and type in ORIGINALS

    delete ALL the originals folders

    then simply import the "iphoto library" folder into iPhoto

    you MAY get 3 or 4 double, but all your photos SHOULD be in there
