    Hello fellow iMac users. Have any of you done this to share iphoto with other users on the iMac?

    If so, how's it working for you?
    I'm planning on sharing with my wife and letting her have editing options.

    Thanks

    Place the iPhoto library on a network-attached storage. Then, on each Mac, hold down Option while clicking on the iPhoto icon in the dock. Then, select the library on the NAS. This is a one-time process :)

    This question seems to get asked about once a week. Read the dozens of posts. The main take away should be that iPhoto (and other) libraries are not meant to be shared. Don't be upset if you corrupt your library.

    My personal advice... only share your photo library if you don't give a damn about your pictures.
