So today I opened up iphoto and was presented with a box telling me that I had no iphoto library and needed to create one or choose one from the options below...there were no options. I searched my computer (including the trash can) for "iphoto" and "library", I also went looking for an "originals" folder on the advice of a google search. I could not find anything. I poked around the iphoto package contents and could not find any trace of my old pictures. I had several years' worth stored in iphoto, it's where I dump all the pictures from my iphone and my digital camera. Is there any other option I can use to try to get all my old photos back? I didn't have them saved anywhere else... I don't have Time Machine enabled... I'm afraid this is simply a lost cause and that I've lost every single last one of my photos.
