Go to your Pictures Folder and have a look for a big file called "iPhoto Library". In case it is still there check its file size (should be well over 1 GB depending on how much photos are inside) and **make a backup before proceeding**. Right-Click the file and select "show contents". Unless the Library is damaged you should now be able access the files and photos within the Library and copy them elsewhere. When you are done, you can create a new iPhoto Library and put your pictures back in.

The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
