How do I recover photos that I deleted

I just returned from a trip, took hundreds of pictures with my iPhone, downloaded them onto my iMac, deleted them from the iPhone, then found that many I had taken did not appear on the iMac. Help!

icloud only stores photos in backups (or in a special case, when using photo stream).  If you have turned on backup and made sure the camera roll is turned on (only photos from camera roll are backed up), then you can get photos back by performing a restore.  But note that users should always sync photos to a computer to archive them, relying on icloud is not foolproof.
Go to Settings>General>Reset and tap Erase All Content and Settings.  This will erase your device.  Then you will go through the setup screens again as you did when your device was new, and when given the option, select Restore from iCloud Backup.

  • How can I recover photos that were deleted accidentally?

    I am using iPhoto 6.0.6
    I accidentally deleted a folder of photos in iPhoto and then emptied the trash from within the program. Is there any way to recover these files? I have not emptied the trash from finder, but I have closed iPhoto.
    Is there any possible way to recover these files, either using an option from within OS X or a 3rd party solution?

    Don't you have a backup of your library you can recover those photos from? The Finder trash is not connected to iPhoto's trash bin. If you emptied iPhoto's trash then the photos have been deleted from the hard drive. You can run the of SubrosaSoft FileSalvage in it's demo mode to see if it can find and recover those photos before you purchase it. Others have had success in recovering photos as long as there hasn't been a lot of new files added to the HD that might overwrite those files.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier) database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 6 and 7 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
    Note: There now an Automator backup application for iPhoto 5 that will work with Tiger or Leopard.

  • How to recover photo that i deleted accidentally while i was trying to upload the photo on the phone??

    how to recover photo that i deleted accidentally while i was trying to upload the photo to the computer??
    also, itn't itune will backup myself whenever i sync???Will the old back up file got updated when i connect the phone with computer??

    I don't think recovery software will help since the file isn't just deleted, it's overwritten.  If you want to try, the backups are located at one of these locations:
    Mac OS: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup
    Windows XP: %AppData%\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
    Windows Vista: %AppData%\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
    Windows 7: %AppData%\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

  • How can I recover pics that were deleted/emptied from the trash?

    I deleted a folder that was named incorrectly, and it turned out to be the bulk of my photos. How can I recover these files if the trash was emptied. This is years of pictures.

    Your back up?
    Other than that... File Salvage - you can download a free trial and it will scan the disk for you and tell you with might be recoverable. Actual recovery will require that you purchase the app. There may be many files with the same or similar names. Always recover the largest file size.
    There are other such apps. Search on Macupdate or the App Store

  • How to recover photos that were deleted while restoring back up on my IPhone

    Well, today I decider to see if I could recover stuff from my old iPhone 4, so I connected my phone to iTunes and clicked "Restore Backup". Little did I know that it would delete all my photos, which I didn't know it was going to do that:( So, i lost all my photos & it's making me really sad because they were special...
    I was wondering if there was a way to restore those photos. Like literally anything I can do, because they were really important to me & I am literally crying at this moment. If I knew that restoring my phone wod delete the photos I had, I would've backed it up first, but it never happened to me before, so I just assumed...
    Anyone with any advice PLEASE HELP ME D:

    Sorry no.  IF those data weren't backed up, then there is no way to get it back.
    Not unless you synced your contacts with a program i.e outlook,google in iTunes. then you could resync your contacts.

  • How can I recover photos that have become corrupt

    Hi guys, having some trouble with old photos on my pc (windows 7), any help would be much appreciated.
    I have some old holiday photos on my pc in a specific folder . I had downloaded a password protection application and had set it up so that i had to use a password to access just that specific folder. I stupidly deleted this password application without
    having "un-linked" it from this folder.
    This allowed me to access this folder with the pictures in it without the password, however i am no longer able to view any of the photos. They have all changed from a 'JPEG' to a couple of the following types of files : 'TI File',    ')4( File',
             ')(EFile'    'ZUR_ELPRRC_ File',   'DME File'. 
    I cannot open any of these files with any type of application on my pc (I think). It will not let me preview in windows photo viewer and states that the file "cannot open because its either deleted , or its in a location that isnt available".
    I also cannot delete the files as it states that the file' is no longer in the specific location, and to verify its location and try again".
    I have also right clicked on the files and selected restore previous versions, which there were none. 
    If I try open the file with a windows picture view it states that the' file is not found'.
    Any idea on how i may be able to recover these files? Any help will be much appreciated!:)
    Thanks Heaps

    When you password-protected these folders then you did so to prevent anyone from accessing the pictures unless he had the correct password, even if he deleted the password application itself. Are you now asking how to get around this protection? If you
    selected a robust protection scheme then you probably got what you wanted: uncrackable encryption. You need to check the FAQs of this application and/or google for clues. Alternatively you could restore your files from your external backup medium (if you have
    one . . .).

  • Recovering photos that iTunes deleted from iPad.

    I just got a new mac computer and recently tried syncing all of my pictures on my iPad with iTunes. I've never backed up the iPad on iCloud or anything like that. When I clicked sync I noticed that step 1 said "Deleting Photos". Once it was done I looked through my iPad and noticed that about 100 pictures were missing. Why it deleted only some and not all I have no idea. But I really want those pictures back! I've tried googling and reading all the forums but everything I see is about recovering pictures from iPhones that have been backed up on iCloud. I tried one of those sites that are supposed to be able to recover anything from iTunes but when I clicked on my device it only showed the pictures that were not deleted from the beginning. I don't know what to do and I'm really upset that I've lost all of those pictures. Please help if you can!!

    What pics?
    If they were pics synced from your old computer, then they would indeed be deleted.  Just copy them from the old computer to the new one.
    If thye were pics you took with the ipad then you should have been importing them toyour computer regularly as you would with any digital camera.

  • How do I recover photos that corrupted when I upgraded to iphoto 11?

    I just installed iphoto 11 on my macbook and stupidly didn't back up my library, When the library was rebuilt, 40 photos have corrupted - weirdly, all the corrupted photos are black and white, landscape - and any photos in the sequence that are portrait are just fine. i can still see the photos as thumbnails, but can't open them.
    I have tried 3 things:
    Clearing iphoto preferences and cache (didn't work)
    Repairing the library (it gets stuck every time at 74% and then I have to force quit)
    Downloading iphoto library manager and rebuilding the library (it entirely deletes the corrupted images)
    E-mailing myself the images (not sure where I was going with this one, but it wouldn't let me e-mail them anyway!)
    Missing photos are the first photos of our newborn baby so pretty anxious to get them back... anyone got any bright ideas?

    Without a backup you are probablhy out of luck - remember that withou a backup you are guarenteed to lose your files including your photos sooner or later - things happen and a backup is the only protection you have against hardware, software and human failure
    It may be because the photos were B/W - unless they had a RGB color profile then that is the most likely cause - iPhoto does not work with other color profiles including grey scale - what was the source of these photos?

  • How do I recover photos I never deleted?

    Hi! So recently I updated my computer to OS X Yosemite version 10.10.2 and somehow all my iPhoto photos were deleted. Is there anyway I can get them back? Thank you in advance!

    These are your options:
    1. Restore the iPhoto library from the most recent backup that predates the issue.
              Advantages: Always works, if library damage is causing the problem and the backup is intact.
              Disadvantages: Impossible if you don't have a backup. All changes made since the backup are lost.
    2. Repair or rebuild the library. Be sure to back it up first.
              Advantages: May solve the problem with no loss of data.
              Disadvantages: May fail. May take a long time if the library is large.
    3. Scavenge the library with a third-party application called "iPhoto Library Manager," which you can find in a web search. From the application's menu bar (not the iPhoto menu bar), select Library ▹ Rebuild.
              Advantages: All images and albums should be preserved.
              Disadvantages: All books, calendars, and slideshows will be lost.

  • How can I recover pictures that were deleted from my Playbook after a OS upgrade?

    The playbook would not back up when i connected to my pc via the BB desktop manager.
    The message that popped up in the desktop manager advised the Playbook counldnt connect and the solution was it needed an update. When I okayed the update, the new OS was installed.
    All I did was click ok to the message. Nothing popped up telling me the playbook would be wiped.
    Now, all my pics and videos are gone - and have not been backed up. Is there any solution?
    Thanks for your time.

    Yes.  I tried the refresh and checked the uninstall tab.  Still nothing.  Another thing though - when I entered my Blackberry ID, it would not let me use my screen name because it was supposedly already in use.  But I knew that because it was in use by me.  It would only let me use the same name with a numerical suffix.  So I am wondering if it thinks I am still logged on from before the upgrade.  Also, is it possible the Playbook thinks I am some other use and won't let me access my files - like photos and videos, etc.

  • How do I recover photos that are in my library but I can't find the files?

    After uploading pics of a car accident I was involved in (to iPhoto 6), I moved them to a separate folder. Now they appear at the top of the iPhoto screen in the Library, and the information appears in the lower left hand corner, but I can't view them, and they're no longer in the folder I moved them to.
    These pics might save me a lot of money, so I would very much appreciate a solution.

    It is strongly advised that you do not move, change or in anyway alter things in the iPhoto Library Folder as this can cause the application to fail and even lead to data loss
    Where did you move them to? Did you do this using the Finder? This would explain why iPhoto can't find them.
    Of course you backed up this important data, right?
    Try a spotlight search for them
    Kind -> Images
    Size -> greater than -> 100kb
    Search the whole comuter. It'll find every image.
    If they're not in there, then you have trashed them.
    You may have some luck revocering them using something like File Salvage
