Protect iPhoto originals via sharing and user switching

In your hint you said "I can then create an album and drop the photos from the shared album into a new album, which creates a copy of the photo."

So in either case you're making a duplicate.
Just put 'em all in a separate roll and delete that at the end, rather than all the hassle you're going to.

I agree with you and I do use the duplicate method for small and quick projects.
However, for larger projects that span weeks, months or even years, I do not want to keep duplicates around the main library that long. I also tend to have many incomplete projects going at the same time. Always find time to start a new project, rarely find time to finish one.

I prefer to keep projects in their own library until complete and then burn that project library to disk for later use and modifying if needed.

Another similar method without using FUS, would be to use iphoto buddy. You can create your album, export photos to a folder, create a new iphoto library and import the photos. You can then switch between libraries with iphoto buddy.
