iPhoto library problem

My father-in-law has an iMac.
He has lots of photos from his camera on the mac, and he uses iPhoto to organise and view them.

Yesterday he attached his camera as usual, but iPhoto threw up an error about there being no library and as such it had to create a new one before it could continue (I'm paraphrasing there as I never read saw the actual error).

Now iPhoto has no knowledge of his existing photo's.

Unfortunately I know next to nothing about MacOS or iPhoto. I can find his existing photos in the pictures directory, but I cannot get iPhoto to import them into it's library.

Can someone help me out here so I can sort out my in-law's mac.

TIA

Alan
