    Yeah, Ik. I'm not english so I translated it as I thouht it should be. Photos it is.

    EDIT: I might've accidently removed iPhoto as an app from my mac, am I screwed? Will I never see the pics again? It's alot of pictures which are important to me..

    You shouldn't be. All your photos should still be in the iPhoto Library file which should be in your Pictures Folder.

    When you run Photos for the first time, it should import all your pictures from the iPhoto Library file, and they should appear in Photos. Has this happened?

    If not, and you still have the iPhoto Library file, you can access it and import from there. However, it is not a standard folder that you can open by double clicking. It is a Package. To open it, Right/Ctrl/Two Finger click on it. Inside there will be a number of folders. All your original photos will be, unsurprisingly, in the Originals Folder, and any that you have edited/modified will be in the Modified Folder.

    This tells you how to import your iPhoto Library into Photos, although I haven't tried it.

    Sorry if I'm dumb but how to do I find the iPhoto library file? I have:

    AirDrop
    All my files
    iCloud Drive
    Program
    Desktop
    Documents
    Downloaded files (once again its translated so can be a different word. I'll send you some cash on paypal for the trouble if I get my pics back.

    Did you already try to open Photos? It will look for your iPhoto Library file so you hopefully won't have to.

    Yes, I've used Photos for a few months now and can't remember if something popped up when I opened it the first time.

    It should be in your Home Folder>Pictures Folder, the same Folder as your Photos Library file.
