I am having trouble moving an iPhoto Library from one user to another.   I copied the library to a shared location, then on the same computer I switch to the other user only to find that there is a little red - in a circle on the folder.  I am unable to do anything with the folder.  I have checked the "Get Info" and permission to read and write is selected for all users.  From everything I have read I should be able to just copy the Library to any location I would like and then open the Library on other computers.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Further information: I am running on OSX Lion (10.7.3) with iPhoto 09 (8.1.2).  I have my iPhoto Library working in the account of an admin on the computer. Unfortunately I have redundant users on the computer and want to consolidate everything to the original user on the computer, or the user that set up the computer originally.  This "original" administrator cannot be delete so I am moving everything from user "B" into the "original" administrator on the computer.
