    Hi there

    Can anyone help? I was running low on disk space and in my efforts to free up space accidentally sent my iPhoto library to the recycle bin. Only when I was emptying the bin to free up the space on the hard drive overall did I notice that it was taking a time to empty. I had accidentally put 12,000 photos in there and was deleting them.

    I stopped the empty but all seem to have gone as iPhoto only has the thumbs but all are empty...

    I have a lot of photos on my iPad. Is there any way of getting these photos FROM my iPad TO iPhoto? I am only seeing a small portion to import when I sync, only the ones generated on the iPad and not anything from the iMac or my other devices (iPhone, other iPad etc)...

    Is there any way the original photos would be still on my iMac somewhere?

    Thanks guys. All help really appreciated. I thought I had a back up on my MacBookPro but nope!

    Paul

    And...

    If it helps anyone my Trash on iPhoto still shows 12,841 times in there but only blank thumbs... I wish I could get them back. Otherwise at least the iPAd has the 20 recent events so that would be something...

    Thanks

    Paul
