10.4: Share an iPhoto library among multiple users
Authored by: elmimmo on Sep 11, '05 06:23:42PM

Yes, but that would affect all of your newly created files, not just the iPhoto Library. To those not knowing the "umask" sets what permissions new files are created with. Taking into account that by default OS X creates a new different group for each user account, you would need to set your umask to allow write access to all your files to all users, which not everybody wants (unless your tinkering goes further, which involves playing with Netinfo manager, chmod'ing and chown'ing preexisting files in your home folder, blah, blah… not for the faint of heart).

Oops! I meant iTunes Library in "not just the iPhoto Library".
