Did the suggested and ...
Authored by: helpme on Dec 06, '10 08:38:27AM

I typed in the suggested change into Terminal:

defaults write com.apple.iPhoto RootDirectory /Users/my name/Pictures

and a new file appeared in my user file. However, I got scared when I opened iPhoto and nothing was there. I then typed the second change into Terminal, which maybe I wasn't supposed to do:

defaults remove com.apple.iPhoto RootDirectory

Now I can't figure out where all of my pictures went because when I open iPhoto, nothing is there, and I can't find the files in the new file I created which was supposed to change the location of my iPhoto Library. I fear the worst - did I just lose all of my photos in iPhoto?
