Re: Shotwell Lost Photos !!

Thanks Flemur but nothing in trashbin.

Tried your link,link worked but was of no help...did a bit of searching and found all photo thumbnails,imported them to shotwell but they only show up as small pics and when i try to make them bigger they blur.

I might just have to put up with this instead :(
