    If they're user photos, try removing the folder containing such pics, then re-adding it, using the "-" and "+" buttons in the lower left.

    To show hidden files in Finder, enter the following two commands into a Terminal window (press enter after each line):
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    killall Finder​
