View Full Version : Can't find photos?

More questions!

I've imported pictures from my camera and it's now sitting nicely in my iPhoto library. I tried to upload the pictures onto a image hosting site but I couldn't locate the pictures. Where is the physical files of the pictures? I can view it on iPhoto library but couldn't find them anywhere else on my computer.

I hope this makes sense.

Just drag the photos from within iPhoto.

If you insist on finding the files through the Finder, then they are in a package in the Pictures folder in the Home Folder. The package iPhoto Library can be accessed via the contextual menu "Show Package Contents".

Yeah, that's what I'm doing at the moment (drag photos to desktop).

I guess I'll stick to doing this then. The other option sounds too... complicated.

If you click on the photo within iPhoto, you can also select "show file" from the contextual menu.

Just remember that if you drag photo from iPhoto to the desktop they will stay at their original size, which is usually HUGE.

I always use the "Export" command and choose a smaller size, especially if I am uploading to a website.
