iPhoto is an Apple-provided application built for Mac OS X operating system and comes bundled with each Macintosh computer. The tool is used to import, maintain, share, print, and edit digital pictures. iPhoto organizes these photos and your library information in a specific folder called iPhoto Library Folder. All the photos that iPhoto imports are copied in this library folder. Along with photos themselves, iPhoto Library Folder also contains some data files that represent attributes like ratings, keywords, albums etc. If this information or photos are deleted somehow, you will no longer be able to access them anymore. Such situations necessitate Image Recovery tools that can recover deleted images and photos, however, there can be other reasons as well.
Consider a situation when you use iPhoto application on your Mac OS X computer. You find some of your photos missing from the iPhoto Library. You cannot view these photos anywhere on the system.
Few causes that can cause missing images in iPhoto Library Folder are:
iPhoto Library structure is having issues
You have deleted the photos accidentally
You need these solutions to overcome the existing problem:
For library structure issues:
Use ‘Software Update’ and install all iPhoto updates available. Check if the problem goes away. If you cannot see your lost photos, backup your existing iPhoto Library folder and use its rebuild feature to recover the orphaned photos. If this fails, you can manually import the data in iPhoto Library to a new one.
For deleted photos:
Check if a backup is available from which you can restore the accidentally deleted photos. Backup must be running and contain all the lost photos. If no good backup exists, you should opt for a good Image Recovery Software. These software utilities efficiently bring lost digital back to original state and view using suitable scanning algorithms.
Photo Recovery tools are exclusively built applications that analyze the affected media and restore lost or missing digital photos, videos, and audios at a safe location. These software are easy to install and use due to their self-explaining nature.
