    There is also Spotlight (CMD+SPACE, or loupe icon in the top right corner of the Menu Bar) to search for files.

    Btw, plurals are not created via apostrophes.

    Also have a look at the following links to learn more about Mac OS X:




    How can you do that? How did you get the photo onto your Mac in the first place and how did you hide it?

    If you remember when (time) you put that image onto your computer, you can use Finder > New Search (CMD+F) to find via date and even Kind.

    Under iPhotos' "View" menu click on "Hidden Photos", this will let you see them, they will have a BIG red X in the corner, if you want to unhide any of them go to the "Photos" menu and select "Unhide Photos".

    Thanks, learnt another thing. http://www.dutchgrammar.com/en/?n=NounsAndArticles.11

    OP, are you from the Netherlands?

    Anyway, it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things to not come.

    Perhaps the OP is like me and has *thousands* of photos.

    Name each one? Nope. Name one or two? Perhaps.
