    Hi all,

    Just having a look inside my iPhoto library folder (not making changes!) and noticed that with a recent update (June, maybe), all of my 'previews' from that date are in individual folders, but the folder names are non-sense - please see the picture.

    What is going on? Is my database corrupt?

    Thanks.

    My Aperture3 Library looks like that. It's a database and isn't written for users, just the application that accesses it. That's why it's "hidden" unless you know how to open it. As long as your photos show up in your application like you want, don't fret about it.
