HOW TO: Extract Thumbnails from Photos App (Missing Original)

This is a problem i’ve been struggling with for a while. I ‘imported’ 1200 photos into the Photos app, not realizing that they were referring my flash drive. then i wiped out my flash drive thinking they were safe and imported only to realize that Photos didn’t actually MOVE the photos anywhere. I was left only with thumbnails in photos and a family vacation worth of photos was lost. What to do? Well this is ONE way to get the images out, not at the best quality but atleast extract the thumbnails so you can reimport those thumbs as ‘original’ images so you can edit and otherwise use them.

Hope this helps the next person and if it does, feel free to shoot me a tip 🙂
