    Is there a simple way for me to copy my photos in my Iphoto so that I can put them on my wife's macbook? I want to keep them on mine also but she is wanting them too. I could just download to her computer from the camera they were taken on but they would not be edited and I want her to have the edited version. thanks

    Do you have a USB stick/external drive/CD/DVD?

    Drag them from iPhoto to the external. It will make a copy.

    You should be able to just copy over the "iPhoto Library" icon in your Pictures folder into her Pictures folder.

    If there is a problem with that you can right click on the "iPhoto Library" icon in your Pictures folder and select "Show Package Contents". From there you can copy the "Originals" and "Modified" folders.
