Good news and bad news . . .You will probably have to reinstall the OS - that is, unless you have backed up your files on Time Machine or some other back up program. Then all you have to do is ask the back up program to reinstall the missing files. 
But if you haven't backed up, you will lose your Mail accounts and email, but not your photos, as far as I know. But at least you can rebuild your accounts. 
You will find your iPhoto library in the Applications folder. You can find your photos If you have a .Mac (Mobile Me) account, however, you will find your .Mac mail online. 
Here is more help for iPhoto:

I hope something in there helps.  Best wishes, Shari Dyer

Lost my email icon & thus mail !!!! Need to get it back

I'm not sure what version of MacOS your on, but for more modern versions. If you look in the top right corner of your desktop you'll see a magnifying glass. If you click on it, and then type mail, it should show the Mac's mail application. Alternately you can launch the Finder, and then from the menu bar up top select Go->Applications. This will bring you to a folder with all the applications in it. Mail should be in there.

On iLife '11

Apple has added the iLife '11 suite -- released just few days-- to Mac Box Set offerings available at the online Apple store, and various other outlets such as Amazon. A basic $129 bundle includes iLife '11, Mac OS X Snow Leopard and iWork '09. The Family Pack edition costs $179, but includes licenses for five computers instead of just one.

iLife '11 makes major changes to its three core programs, for instance implementing new fullscreen views in iPhoto, and effects macros in iMovie. GarageBand has gained tools for fixing rhythm and note duration. Some fullscreen modes in the suite notably borrow design cues from the iPad, mimicking things like the tablet's photo stacks and iOS-style menu bars.

But, recently a thread began discussing iLife '11 and the problems associated with upgrading, a poll is also included showing that 33.33% of people who have upgraded have had no issues to report. And one forum goer declared that they've had enough of Flash and sparked a rather lengthy debate about the practicality of Flash.

Would I really see a difference? Would we really need the new special thing?

Just days after issuing a quick fix for a critical library bug, Apple has rolled out the first major iLife '11 upgrade with iPhoto 9.1, which restores the ability to create and order calendars, a feature that went missing on the initial release. It also fixes an issue that prevented videos downloaded from MobileMe or Flickr from importing correctly into iPhoto events, and adds some holiday-themed letterpress card options. The update addresses only the version of iPhoto that shipped with the new iLife '11 suite.

The loss of the calendar-creation option had sparked much hue and cry among iPhoto users, and it remains unclear if the omission was unintentional or not. Apple's web page for iPhoto '11 has already been updated to specifically mention creating calendars.
The update, which is recommended for all iPhoto 9 users, also addressed a video-importing bug that affected MobileMe and Flickr users. iPhoto 9 was one of the three significantly upgraded applications in the iLife '11 suite, adding new full-screen management options, new email templates, new slideshows, improved integration with Facebook and improved book printing.

As for me, I like iMovie. It makes it easy to import, select, edit and export (in several formats) our clips; and the speed at which we can make such good-looking movies with transitions and effects removes the chore aspects. So I can <a href="">convert dvd to avi</a>/mp4 then make short movies, just a personal preference.

Lastly, to support the launch of iLife '11, Apple has implemented what it calls the iLife '11 Hardware Up-to-Date Program. Instead of having to pay the usual $49 for an iLife '11 upgrade, people can potentially get the software for just $7. Those who bought a Mac with an earlier version of iLife between October 1st and the 19th must submit an order form by November 19th. For people buying a Mac with an outdated iLife on or after the 20th, a 30-day post-purchase window exists.

In the case of multi-system purchases, people can opt either to get one upgrade kit per computer, or buy a smaller number of licenses and request "right to copy" permissions. Qualifying Macs must come from the online Apple Store, one of the company's retail locations, or an authorized reseller. But I think that there are always ways to fix that. DVD, for example. Some people like to go to the cinema, whereas others like to watch movie at home. Now I put dvd to ipod/ipad with a <a href="">dvd converter</a>, and it's easier to enjoy on a trip. Hi-tech electronic products can make us live more comfortably.

I cannot transfer pictures from IPhoto to Facebook because it will not accept my password & e-mail address

I assume you refer to iMac fails to.

you will most likely have to reset all personal security details. A pain, have done a few resets where I forget these details so I would think this will be the same procedure. Best I can come up with.

How do I overcome -50 error code working in iPhoto

Hi Buck,
Sorry for taking so long to get an answer to you..
I'm sure you have figured it our by now...
Error -50 is a nasty error..
(opwrerr file already open with write permission)
You would probably have had to open the iPhoto daabase and take out all your original files .. delete your iPhoto Database then re-import them all into a new iPhoto Database... then rebuild all your events and albums...

You should of course try to repair permissions and update all your system and apps first...

I mistakenly changed the hard drive name on my MacBook and have lost access to iPhoto and iMusic files. Is there a way to recover my previous desktop and access settings?

I take it that you have forgotten the original name of the hard drive if not just rename the disk. Failing that go into itunes go to preferences and then click on the Advanced tab and you can then change where you media files are.

For iphoto look at this article on the apple website

Hope this helps

I moved my iphoto library onto an external harddrive and now when i open it, the albums are there but the pictures all show up as exclamation points. is there any way to fix this or are all my photos lost?

no, they are not lost. what that means is your mac is looking for where the photos should be, in the library, and they are not there anymore. Are you opening it from the external drive, or from your macs regular drive.

Lost Leopard mail from iMa

I am afraid i gave in and found an Apple repair company. They sorted it out at a high cost but I cannot function with all my interests without a machine that I can trust. The engineer said he found my E mail in the waste bin. No idea how it got there or how I could recover it. I had look at the contents of this bin several times and never saw anything resembling mail.

Thanks for your concern folks,

Select the drop down menu 'share' Select email You will be asked to select the size that you want to send, the larger the size the longer it will take to send.
