All the photos I imported with iPhoto from my Nikon P6000 are now missing in iPhoto. iPhone pics still there.
When I try to import from p6000 again, it won't work because iPhoto thinks it already has the pics. Can't find them anywhere though.
Have also restarted iPhoto and rebooted mac.
Macbook pro 17". OSX 10.8.4
Hi, Try rebuilding the iphoto library. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2638
OK, I'll check in again in the morning (it's 11:35pm here)
Daniel, still having the same issue. Can't find the photos, but it seems they are there somewhere because it warns me of duplicates if I try to load them again. No problem with the photos that are still on the camera, but those that got taken off the camera are unrecoverable so far in iPhoto. These are very important photos we took on our Mediterranian cruise
Hello Sir. Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity to help you. I am Jins here to assist you. Please remember these things when we deal with your issue.

In this first series of steps, you can skip to Part II, below, as soon as you successfully locate the file.
To keep this from happening again, avoid renaming, moving, or deleting items in the iPhoto Library folder.
Jins, it looks like this fix doesn't apply to my actual situation. I do not see thumbnails for the pics I'm missing. I'm missing several hundred pics (and their thumbnails) from an upload from my Nikon P6000; all of the pics from that upload are missing. They were there immediately after uploading them, existing in the "Last Import" folder. However, I think they disappeared when I uploaded more pics from my iPhone. I would have expected them to be in the "Last 12 months" folder at that time, but no. I had the same thing happen with the next batch of pics from the P6000. Those are still on the camera, however. When I try to upload them again, I get a notice that they are duplicate pics. Even though iPhoto tells me they're duplicate, they don't exist in any of the folders.
Not to complicate the matter, but many of the most recent pics in the "Last 12 Months" folder do not appear in "Event" or "Photos" folders.
Hope that isn't too confusing.
It is selected.
And has been selected all along.
This is iPhoto 09 version 8.1.2 (424)
Jin, I've already done that as per request from Daniel. No success; same mix of pics.
I don't see anything in the finder that starts with HD. If this is in a shell environment, I'm not up on that. Is there a shell app that I should be using for this?
In /Macintosh HD/Library/Caches, there's no com.apple.iPhoto file.
Following the path /Macintosh HD/users/rexsmith/... there's no library folder.
Same story with preferences folder. File not there.
Out of time today. I will have to resume tomorrow morning. I'll let you know tomorrow as soon as I try this.
If you reply one more time, I'll be able to see the thread again. Sometime, the web page doesn't let me see the thread after I reply.
OK, i did go through process of deleting the folder and the file. Same result. The pics that are lost are no longer on the camera. That's my big issue.
BTW, the photos and events folders still didn't update with the latest photos in the last 12 months folder.
I'll be back online tomorrow.
Well, I thought we had it. The photos do exist in the library as evidenced by the search. I ran the library rebuild and was encouraged because as I was watching the progress of it, I could see the lost photos being imported. After that completed, I opened iPhoto using the rebuilt file with same results as before. Pics not viewable and Photo and Event folders not populated with latest info. I think we're getting there though.
Jin, all is well. After I sent you the last response, it occurred to me that the dates on the pics I found with the find application were 2012 instead of 2013. Then a lightbulb went off. Checked the camera and sure enough, the date in the camera was set a year too early. Checked back a year in iphoto and the pics were there. I changed the event dates and now all the pics are showing up in the right place.
User error for sure, but your guidance led me to the epiphany. Excellent service from you. I was going to tell you before this, but the web page wouldn't let me say anymore until you replied. I think something needs to be done about that.
In fact, I think you're going to have to reply to this before I'll be able to give you a most excellent rating.
