    I have my photos on my imac in my user account under pictures. This works fine and is backed up with Time Machine.

    I also have a MBP and want to access the iphoto library in my user account but whatever settings I use in sharing this will not work.

    I have heard I can put this in my shared folder but I wonder if time machine will still back this up and also if this will work.

    Could someone pls help me, its annoying as my itunes library is on an external hard drive and this can be accessed on both macs using the alt key.

    Thanks in advance

    The shared folder should be backed up, mine is done by Time Machine, so just move your iPhoto library there
