Have you checked your Recycle Bin - if they are still in there then you can restore them.
If not and you have no backup then they are gone.
See my reply to "OopsDeleted" about 2 weeks ago - subject was Lost photos- can I recover thumbnails?
This gives a rather tedious procedure for rescuing some kind of image from the thumbnails but the quality will be poor.
thankyou Bill for your help
Boy, I wish Adobe had a special OOPS! folder for all of us who accidentally deleted photos. I lost 5 photos. I deleted them from Adobe after I moved them to their own special folder in My Documents, but they're not there. I've been trying to recover them for the past few days using data recovery programs like iUndelete and iRescue, but no luck.
Is Photo Well the same thing as thumbnails? I've read where some people who have lost their photos still are able to view them as thumbnails, but if it's the same thing as Photo Well, mine don't show up there, either. I can't remember if I chose "delete from hard disk" but I must have, because I've searched my computer and can't find them.
QUESTION: By any chance are deleted photos assigned a different name than the original photos? Maybe I've been searching for the wrong files all along???? Ugh, I'm about to give up, but does anyone know anywhere else I can look? I've already emptied my Recycle Bin. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
