Question: Where Are My iPhoto Photos Stored On My Hard Drive?

I want to backup some of my photos but can't find them on my computer. Where does iPhoto store photos on my hard drive?

Asked by Calvin S.

Answer:

To find iPhoto photos on your MacBook Pro 13, double-click the Macintosh HD icon on your desktop, click on the Users folder, click on your folder within the Users folder, then click on Pictures. Within the Pictures folder there should be a file called iPhoto Library. Right-click or hold the Control key while clicking on iPhoto Library and select Show Package Contents. This will display various iPhoto related files as well as all of your photos.

If you are looking for specific photos, navigate to the Originals folder. Photos are organized by date.
