    I search for "iPhoto Library" (because I have more than one) but it doesn't "see" any of them even though I can see the main one if I go to Pictures.

    Use Finder instead of Spotlight. It's more thorough and can search locations that Spotlight doesn't.

    Tried that. It doesn't find anything. If I search for "iPhoto" it finds the app but not the library.

    Good try again but this doesn't work. It doesn't even see the default library!

    Complete steps 1-7 in those instructions, take a screen shot of your Finder window and post it.
