Tuffy P came back from Buffalo with over 300 photos on the camera. I dropped them into iPhoto on our computer, and looked through them there. Then I shut down iPhoto. Meanwhile, I took a couple photos in the garden on my phone, and when I put those into iPhoto, I noticed that all the Buffalo photos had disappeared, nowhere to be found.
I tried googling for help, and followed the advice of rebuilding the database. This took half an hour but in the end I still didn’t have any of the 300+ photos. I’m hoping these photos are hiding somewhere in iPhoto or on my computer, and I will find them and shout, Eureka! Is that too much to hope for? Does anyone out there have any ideas as to how I might recover these photos?
This is not the first time iPhoto has, for no reason at all, disappeared some of our photos, and I’m getting grumpy about it, grumpy enough to find an alternative. If any of you Mac users out there use an alternative, what is it and how well does it work for you? I don’t want to risk losing any more photos. I never had technical problems with iPhoto until recently and I don’t know what has changed. It was never a very friendly program, but I got over that. I can’t get over losing photos.
Open for suggestions….
