I had just taken some photographs out of my camera put them into a new folder situated in the pictures folder, named that folder and now I can't find that folder anywhere. I've looked in spotlight according to spotlight the folder doesn't seem to exist. I've started to think maybe I hallucinated creating the folder but the pictures I deleted from the collection are in the trash so I know I did transfer to computer. I did try tinker tool to access hidden files in case it hid itself, but I still can't find it. Some one suggested going into terminal and doing /tmp folder name search and it comes up with /tmp: is a directory So what does that mean? Now I'm in a complete panic as to where all my pictures went so anyone who can help I'd really appreciate it.
