I accidentally pressed the "x" button on the bottom of a pic that I wanted to keep. I tried Google to help solve this situation, but only found the following thread to no avail: Photo Booth Photos Deleting - The macosxhints Forums
One of the responders to a person that was in my same situation posted the following directory: /private/var/tmp/folders.501/TemporaryItems/
That doesn't work.
Does anybody know how to find those pictures?
It's not in my Trash, I don't know where it is.

Nevermind, I found them.
Located In /private/var/folders/Np/…/-Tmp-/
So to anybody in that same predicament, you may know where to look in 10.5.7

I have used a program called Flash File Recovery.

Google it, think there is a free trial on their website.

I have only used it once so am not to clued up on how the software fully functions.
