Hello, Ok, this is what happened. First of all, I imported pictures from my digital camera into iPhoto. I renamed the files through automator so it wouldn't be DSCxxx, and instead 2007 Summer xxx. Now, once I did that, I noticed that when I would full screen or try to edit a picture it would show a giant exclamation mark. So, what I needed to do was located the files because they were still pointing towards the DSC's. I am new to Mac, so what I did was copy all the originals from the package contents of iPhoto to my desktop, and then re-imported them into iPhoto. This worked fine for 2 of the albums, but the 3rd one is now gone. It was working until I emptied my trash... So, two questions: 1. How do I recover those photos? 2. Does anyone have any suggestions to what I was doing? How do I point the files directly to the newly renamed pictures without having to delete the event? THANKS SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!
