    Deleting something from the Dock doesn't mean it's gone from your hard drive.
    The Dock just holds shortcuts to whatever you put there, mostly applications.

    iPhoto should be still in the Applications folder.

    Your pictures are saved in a library called iPhoto Library under Macintosh HD > Users > Your Account (or whomever) > Pictures > iPhoto.

    Thanks for the reply I have found it but there is a little minus sign on the folders. It says the folder can not be open because you have sufficient access privileges.

    That may be because you're logged in as user "Adam", but are accessing a folder under the user "Eve".
    If that's it, you can only access "Eve's" folders when using the "Eve" account.

    If you are "Adam" and trying to access a folder under "Adam's" home folder, and can't access it, try the following:

    Select the folder > right click > get info > sharing and permissions > see if you are listed with write and read privileges.

    You can also get info via Cmd+I.
