    Time Machine and iPhoto
    Is there a way to use Time Machine to restore individual photos from iPhoto? Awhile ago I exported a bunch of older photos from iPhoto to free up some hard drive space and I recently discovered that I apparently "exported as original" on several and lost the edits. But back in Time Machine I know must live the versions I wish to recover. It doesn't seem obvious to me how to do anything other than restoring the entire library.

    Any tips on this?

    Thanks,
    Dante

    iPhoto and Time Machine--cross post
    No responses on the Operating System forum, so I thought I'd try this one...
