    How can I share my iPhotos between all the users of my iMac? like when I download pictures to iPhoto, can other users find the same photos in their iPhoto?

    Can I do this within iPhoto, or is additional software needed?

    I'm not a big iPhoto user, so my info may be a little out of date, but here is one method. It might be a little scary for someone who isn't comfortable with Terminal, but it's pretty straightforward...just follow the instructions exactly.

    This shares the entire iPhoto Library between users. I don't know of a way to effectively share only certain photos, but I'm not sure what your goals are.

    I just thought there might be a way for me, when I download photos to maybe drag them in like a share folder that shares your photos with everyone else via iPhoto.
