So, I think I managed to accidentally delete my Iphoto Library, however thanks to time machine, i managed to save it, but now it wont open.

It says that "The iphoto Library is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have permission to make changes to it"

I have copy and pasted the library from time machine to its original location.

help please!
QUOTE Thanks

Right-click on the iPhoto Library file and click 'Get Info'. Then check the permissions at the bottom of the Get Info window. They should look like this:


Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
