Is it, and how, possible to restore data from iMac?

I have an user who accidentally lost all his images from iPhoto. Also, the database of iPhoto seems gone, and I don't know what to do.

Any help appreciated.

I think that DataRescue III is considered the best Mac data recovery program, but it costs $99.

There is a free beta that you might want to try:  http://www.techspot.com/downloads/5128-disk-drill-for-mac.html

Can you be a little more specific as to what led to the loss?  Broken HDD? deleted directory/file?

This may help determine if data recovery is the route...

Yes, please be more specific. Is the drive still functional? If so, there's a high probability that the data's still there. Due to the way files are organized, it just may be buried in a directory that the user can't locate.

Thanks all, yes the drive is functional.
It seems the used deleted some stuff off from the library.

I have a TimeCapsule backup, and would like to restore it. In other thread I asked about it. - How can I connect the old archive to the iPhoto?

I have decided not to go for data restoration. The loss is time-insignificant in comparison with restoration.

So, go into time machine - launch from the icon in the menu bar at the top of the screen.

Go back to before the deletion and drag the files you need back to today - if it's not obvious once you are in there (which it should be) then follow the instructions on this page::
