How Can You See Your iPhoto Photos in a Finder on a Mac?


Apple's iPhoto software stores all of the photos and their associated revisions into a packaged folder called the "iPhoto Library" on the computer. Mac OS X and iPhoto save this packaged folder to the "Pictures" folder by default. One of the reasons why iPhoto manages everything in a single packaged folder is for easy transport and backup. You can see the individual iPhoto photos using the Finder interface on a Mac.

  • Click the "Finder" icon in the Dock.

  • Click your username in the left column under "Places."

  • Double-click "Pictures."

  • Hold the Ctrl key, then click "iPhoto Library."

  • Click "Show package contents," then double-click the displayed folders to view the photos. For example, double-click "Masters" to view the original, unmodified photos from the iPhoto library. The photos can be dragged and dropped to other locations on the computer just like regular files.
