If you use iPhoto on your Mac (ok you use it, because it is the most commonly used application in iLife suite and comes pre-installed with any new Mac), you’ve noticed that iPhoto keeps all your photos in a file called iPhoto library. The point is that iPhoto library is a package, not a single file. To view its contents and find your original photo files:
- Left-click (or ctrl+click) the iPhoto library file which is in your user>pictures folder, select show package contents and
- Navigate to “originals” folder and that’s it! You can now view, edit, move or delete your original photo files!
