    We just replaced my wife's dead G5 powermac with a new I-Mac 2.6 20". Our other computer is an I-Mac 2.8 24". We both like to review and edit family photos etc, is there a way to sync the libraries, so that changes appear in both (delete photos, edit, albums, etc). Thanks in advance for your help. Ed

    with rsync + cronjobs. for a free (not easy/ nogui) way if you don't end up finding something else

    I'm wondering if putting the library in a shared folder and pointing both machines to it would work. I can't imagine why not. Of course, the computer that isn't hosting it would need to be connected to the network in order to use it.

    I'd also make sure only one of you was logged in at a time, just for safe measure.
