10.4: Share an iPhoto library among multiple users
Authored by: adam.n on Nov 28, '07 11:31:44AM
Managed to get ad hominem's ACL trick (http://ad.hominem.org/log/2005/07/acl.php) fully working for both iPhoto and iTunes in Leopard. Not 100 % sure what I did though :) Basically followed ad hominem's instructions, plus enabled read/write authority for both users, plus (itunes library only) the same for the user "group" via the application Batchmod. In other words, it seems like this idea works well in Leopard, but needs some minor adjustments.

I am not sure if the suggested tip from paul7 works as intended, it might well. For me, though, I needed to add ACLs to get complete sync between users. Ideally, of course, you want the library to be instantly up to date and identical for both users, when one user has added photos, albums or edits. Works well for us so far, very practical. Only tried it for 10 minutes though, no guarantees :)
