Please forgive my simple question, I am a mac newbie. As recommended, I installed iphoto library manager so that my wife and I can both access and edit the same pictures on the same machine (coming from a pc, this is a bit of foreign concept) . I imported the library from our shared folder with no problems, however when we import it in her account we are getting two of everything. It appears to be the full size & a smaller version, possibly icon size. Is this normal? Should I delete all the smaller versions or does anyone have any suggestions around this?

Rather than importing the library, just open iPhoto whilst holding OPTION and then select the library from the shared folder. You shouldn't need any third party apps or plugins for this to work.
