Aha, that would make sense. It seems that Filter Finder Items does too, in which case how on earth can I select only symlinks?

Interesting... yes your solution does return all files, but what I was doing was using Find Finder Items to attempt to specify symlinks only, and that's what doesn't see them at all. I may be able to work with this but do you have any idea why Find Finder Items cannot see symlinks?

Actually about that... I'm not sure the protocol for this sort of situation. You were very helpful, but technically your suggestions weren't the solution, and if I accept your answer wouldn't that give the wrong impression to someone finding this question at a later date? Personally I'm happy to accept your answer just to say thanks, but it wouldn't technically be accurate. Not sure how to handle this...

Holy crap... I just relaunched iPhoto and now the photo in question can be edited perfectly fine. I was in the middle of a bunch of things so hadn't wanted to reboot, but hadn't considered a simple relaunch. facepalm Anyway, all good now but your attempt to help is very much appreciated!

Thanks for taking a shot, I appreciate it! =) So I like the idea of getting the photo back from icloud, but how would I go about doing that? I don't use iphoto much so not real versed in its intricacies. If I delete the photo in iphoto, won't it be deleted from the cloud too? Not sure how I can import the photo again either since it now only exists in iphoto as far as I can tell. Oh also iphoto won't allow me to reveal the file, the reveal options are greyed out.

To my surprise, iPhoto actually can't reveal the file in finder at all. Both reveal options are greyed out.

I thought this issue had mysteriously fixed itself, but turns out I was looking at a different but very similar photo. The original issue still persists.
