    Open a Finder's window to /YourHardDrive/Users/YourUserName/Pictures/ and highlight the iPhoto Library. Now with the iPhoto Library highlighted go down to the Time Machine dock icon and launch it (while the Finder window to the Photo Library is still open). Then go back in time to before you deletes=d the picture an restore it.

    That assumes, of course, that the OP is using iPhoto and Time Machine, which may not be the case.
