    I'm new to the Apple and the iPhoto 4.0.3....I'm actually a PC user and am helping a friend.

    He has iPhoto 4.0.3. and a Photo Library with a lot of pictures...so much that the hard drive only has 2 Gs left....

    He asked me to delete 2004 pictures and now the Library and the list of folders shows up but no pictures.

    If I go to his Pictures Folder, the pictures seem to be there, but just not in the Photo Library of this program....how do I "restore" him back to where he was....being able to see his zillion of pictures from iphoto 4.0.3.

    I'm in a time bind....suppose to get on a plane in 3 hours....

    Someone please help me....

    Did you delete the photos from iPhoto or from the iPhoto folder? Any organization should be done thru iPhoto only, and not the iPhoto folder.

    Try this http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2042

    Note: The above article recommends backing up the folder first.

    Help with iPhoto 4.0.3

    I tried that....it seemed to work, but still no pictures.

    The pictures are .JPG in the folders of iPhoto.

    I did a test and converted one to .JPEG and then imported it into iPhoto.
    That seemed to work, but it will take me a year to do all these pictures.
    Is there a global way to do this on a MAC?

    I think the rebuilding the library didn't work because it said their should be room enough on the hard drive, and I know there isn't....only 2 GB left...

    Please help...
