Ok, I am a mac newbie...

I have a bunch of pics in my iPhoto and today the wife wanted to upload some to walmart and have them printed out. When I try to locate the pics, I can't get them. I can control click on a picture in iPhoto and it tells me the path to the photos, but when I try to navigate there for uploading, the iPhoto library doesn't exist.

Any clues?

QUOTE Thanks

If you're navigating through Finder, it doesn't seem to recognize the iPhoto Library folder as a folder. Is that what you mean?

I got past this by copying the photos I wanted to another folder in my home directory.

i would suggest dragging and dropping the pictures you would like to upload to walmart onto your desktop from iphoto, upload then delete or store

Stay out of the finder! Users are not meant to do anything to/with their photos in finder. That is why Apple has change the file to be a package -- to keep users from messing about in there and corrupting thir files. Either drag the photos to your desktop from within the app, or use the export function. I suggest export, because then you can choose the size of the photo, and for printing, you would probably want the largest.
