OK, This morning I tried to open my iphoto and it says I have no library. I did not do anything to my knowledge so I figured the folder must be somewhere. I first looked in the trash. Somehow the folder with my pictures was moved to the trash. I found the folder "iphoto albums" and dragged it out of the trash back into the pictures folder. It does appear to list all of my pictures that I had but when I try to open one of them it says the picture cannot be opened because the original item could not be found and gives me the option to "fix alias". I created another iphoto library and tried to point it to the picture folder but still could not find the pictures. I am at a loss right now. I do not want to screw around with something and lose them. I had all of my pictures organized along with events. This is very frustrating. Yes I know, I did not use time machine nor have an EHD. I will be getting one soon. I have learned my lesson. If anyone can guide with with this would be very grateful.
