Recovering photos in iPhoto

I recently deleted some photos in iPhoto by accident. Unfortunately the photos belonged in a photo book I created, so after a few days I noticed the open gaps where the photos used to reside. Argh! Luckily, I routinely use a separate backup harddisk which Time Machine dutifully fills every hour. So recovering the lost pictures was a matter of connecting the backup harddisk, firing up iPhoto, navigating to the photo folder and starting up Time Machine. After searching for a date where the lost picture was still there restoring the lost photo was as easy as clicking a button. Fabulous stuff: Time Machine.
