    Hi, I am trying to use a mirror program to syncronize my iTunes and iPhoto folders between two macs. I have a great program that syncronizes the files but I still have two problems.

    Is there a way to syncronize iTunes library lists and playlists between the two versions of iTunes such that when I add music or playlists to one it shows up in the other?

    Is there a way to syncronize iPhoto albums between the two versions of iPhoto such that when I start iPhoto on either Mac, the listed photo albums are identical?

    Any help is gratefully appreciated

    If you make sure that the entire Music/iTunes folder is the same on both machines, and the entire Picture/iPhoto Library folder is the same on both machines you should be all set.

    ~/Music/iTunes and ~/Pictures/iPhoto Library are the only two folders and their contents that need to be mirrored.
