    Hi- can someone please tell me how to setup a single iphoto library that both my self and my wife can share between our user accounts? We both want to look at one photo album application, and I was wondering if I should setup a separate disk partition, or what. Please help.

    Do you already have two iPhoto libraries going?

    Where is your iPhoto application? It should be in "HD"/Applications so all users share it. That's about all I can tell you, but maybe I'll draw the attention of an iPhoto pro with this post.

    Basically, you'd follow the steps you'll find here.

    Make sure the library is where both users can get at it (maybe in one user's Documents folder? maybe in one user's Public folder?). For the "other" user, hold down the option key when you launch iPhoto and search through your folder structure to find the library.
