    I accidentally, in Photoshop, saved a file to a fairly deeply branched folder in the iPhoto library. (Initially, in iPhoto, I located the original location of the file, which is how, presumably, I ended up at that location in Photoshop.)

    If I click on Pictures > iPhoto Library, then I end up nowhere.

    If I save the file again in Photoshop, then I can see exactly where the file is, but I can't get to it, if you know what I mean.


    Any advice on how to remove that file?

    Right click the iPhoto Library file and select "Open contents".

    Oh. Right. Now I feel like an idiot. (I'm still new to Apple, so don't laugh too much.)

    Yes, that solved it. Thanks.

    No way, man. Feel good that you asked for help before a) messing something up or b) spending time/money that you didn't need to.

    Best damn way to learn is to ask questions like this. Good luck!
