    I have a hard drive that is in the process of dying and had to use Diskwarrior in order to rebuild the drive; luckily, it seems to have recovered my files.

    I looked in Users/Library/Pictures to find my iPhoto Library file, however it doesn't seem to my newer photos that I imported into the library.

    Is there a secondary/hidden location that the original files are stored in? Where exactly can I find them?

    The default location should be ~/Pictures. It's not hidden, but it is in "package form", named "iPhoto Library". The easiest way to get to the actual file is to use iPhoto to show the Finder location inside the package.

    ack - I meant iPhoto. Fingers went on auto, but I think you knew what I meant (corrected post).
