    my sister opened iphoto on her G4 iBook and found that all her photos were gone. I did a bit of troubleshooting from my knowledge and found that her "iphoto pictures" folder isn't located under her account. Not in the trash, etc.

    I've stressed the importance of remembering anything that she changed/deleted etc, and also to remember any notifications she might have recieved. She couldn't give me anything.
    She doesn't back up her computer (i just backed up my parents for the first time today but not hers, oh the irony) and now shes stuck in this jam.

    any ideas?

    thanks

    Did she try to rename her user account or home folder?

    no and no, I did that once (the same day I later decided to start backing things up) so I knew how to fix that. Everything else is fine, her iTunes is the same, etc. Its just her iPhoto library thats missing.

    So, the actual iPhoto Library file is missing?

    What version of iLife?

    Have you tried holding Option when you launch iPhoto?
