Hi. I have an iMac that is hard-wired (ethernet), and my girlfriend has a MacBook and iPad that we use wirelessly. Since I do all the work maintaining our photo library (editing, rating, names, etc.), I would like to have all the devices share my one library.
My understanding is that I can do it one of two ways.
1. A networked drive, through something like Airport Extreme.
2. Using the 'Share my library' setting in iPhoto.
(I realize I can also keep the library on a small USB drive, but that is not very practical)
The second option seems to be the most attractive, as it wouldn't require me to buy an Airport Extreme. I tried it though, and her laptop didn't see my iMac. Are there other network settings that need to be tweaked ?
I'm running OS-X 10.5.8 with iPhoto '09 on my iMac, and iPhoto '08 on her macbook.
