Quickly find unwanted photos in iPhoto
Authored by: Virtual1 on Jul 24, '06 06:45:50PM

This was very helpful! A bug in iphoto causes it to sometimes toss an album into a random place (or folder) or DELETE the album outright while trying to drag it. I lost an important album this way and googled around without finding anyone that could tell me how to find an album based on a photo that was in it. I could find SOME of the pictures with Find by name, but not all of them. No way to tell what album(s) they are a member of.

As it turns out, iPhoto deleted my album outright, and this trick let me find all the photos I had lost, plus about 2 dozen others that had fallen by the wayside as well.
