Re: External drive - Stupid Question.
In reply to Erik Ohlson, May 6, 2013

Really, I don't recommend you doing backups manually like that. Instead, get a cheap external drive that is at least 50% larger than your HDD and set up Time Machine. If your internal drive fails you will have your entire system up and running again in no time.

If you absolutely need to know your images are in the iPhoto library bundle (looks like a file) in you Pictures folder. I assume you're using iphoto...

But you will find it a total mess to browse that library in Finder with a myriad of thumbnail image files etc. stay away would be anybody's strong advise.
