I copied some photos from my phone to my Mac but when I go to Finder, nothing shows up. If I do a search for the jpg images, they are listed. When I click on an image it shows the location on my desktop but if I go to the desktop in finder it DOES NOT show the folder with the images? This has happened before and it is a PITA!

What's going on (I've tried closing the finder window and opening it again, but the folder still doesn't show up?
