Restoring photos from Time Machine

If you have an iPhoto library that has either become corrupt or had photos accidentally deleted from it, and you have been using Time Machine to back up your library, you can use iPhoto Library Manager to copy any missing photos from your Time Machine backup either to the current version of that same library, or to another on of your iPhoto libraries. To do this:

  1. Select the library in question in the library list in iPhoto Library Manager, then select the "Reveal Library in Finder" item from the "File" menu at the top of the screen
  2. Follow the instructions on the following page to restore the backed up iPhoto library from Time Machine: Restore items backed up by Time Machine
  3. Once the library has been restored, add the library to iPhoto Library Manager's library list

From there, you can copy photos from the restored library just like with any other library on your machine.
