iPhoto modifies the files and hides away the data to some internal
location (at least it used to, it may not any more).  Once you import,
you can no longer directly access your files in the filesystem (they're
all 0 bytes).  Of course, she may have done something to cause this, but
all she knows she did was upgrade it.
