Recover photos I deleted from my memory card…?
Yes, I know it’s a long shot, but I was wondering if, using iPhoto, or ANY, ANY, ANY APPLICATION, I can attempt to recover some recently deleted photos from my Canon Powershot S2 IS with a 1gb memory card.
I uploaded 650 photos into iPhoto, reflexively deleted them from my camera, and BOOM, my hard drive fckin’ died. Anyone have any, any suggestions? I will do ANYTHING.
It’s happened to most of us. If you’ve accidentally deleted your pictures on your camera’s memory card and thought they were lost forever, chances are good that you can retrieve them as long as you haven’t taken any more photos or written anything else to the sd memory card.
You will need a card reader, a computer, memory card and a recovery software.

The Mac photo recovery software can recover all your lost or deleted photos from your memory card even if it was corrupted, formatted or damaged. The free version allows you to scan your memory card and preview the recovered files for free. If you are make sure the images you need are recoverable and want to restore them, you need to upgrade to full version by purchasing a registration code.
To perform memory card recovery on Mac, you should download the free trial version of this photo recovery utility.
Step 1. Stop using your Memory Card anymore
Once you realize your photos have been accidentally deleted or lost, don’t take any more photos on the card and remove it from your camera.
That’s because the simple deletion on most cameras just marks the space on a memory card as being available for use rather than overwriting the actual space on the card. As long as you don’t record anything new onto the card, previously deleted photos should be relatively easy to recover using a file recovery utility.
Step 2. Install and set up photo recovery on your Mac
launch the Mac photo recovery software. Connect the SD memory card to your computer with a card reader or just just leave it in your digital camera and connect your camera with computer. Then choose recovery mode "Lost File Recovery", which allows you to restore deleted photos from memory card, internal and external hard disk, iPod, Mobile phone, etc.
If this can’t not help to find, switch to "Raw Recovery" to take a try.
Step 3. Select photo file type for scan
Select to recover from digital camera memory card. If you recover deleted photos emptied from the Trash on your Mac, select the main Macintosh HD.
Choose file type "Image" to narrow the scan range and save up your time. Apart from restoring image files, you can also choose music and video as your target to recover.
