Hi, when I import photos from my sd card into iPhoto I can then view them and all is good. My question is where are the actual jpeg files? For instance if I wanted to burn them on a cd or put them on a memory stick or place them in a document - where are the files?

Thanks

Right click on any photo in iPhoto and when the drop down window appears click on "show file". Finder will open to where the original file is.

I wouldn't go around messing with the original files. Just select the pictures you want and drag them to the desktop or where ever you want a copy of the images.

That would depend on whether, in iPhoto preferences, you have opted to actually import the photos into iPhoto or not. If not, they are still (only) on the sd card. If yes (which I think is the default) they are in the iPhoto library (do a spotlight search) AND on the sd card, unless you opted to delete after import.

Happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get.

OK thanks, Is this the full resolution file that would have come off my sd card. I just can't get my head round Iphoto viewing images they must be stored on my mac some where.

if you want to find the source of your photo that you've been moved to iphoto
please go to home > pictures > right click on iphoto library > show package content ....
