Ok. I want you to check some things that may or may not be affecting the situation. It is posted as an Answer because of site rules but it is really just a diagnostic test. So please don't Rate to Finish just Reply to Expert when done.

Open Macintosh HD / Applications / Utilities and double click Disk Utility. Highlight your hard drive, usually Macintosh HD, and click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK in green type, then click on Repair Permissions on the left.

Note: If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair. If Repair is successful then Repair Permissions if it is not successful let me know.

Do you have your system install disk?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

OK I found the answer, I saved the photo's under a different login. Sorry for the trouble :)

Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 3 years ago.
OK but if you can't even open the Disk Utility you have problems. You should check or you could lose everything.
