My wife and I share a new Macbook. We want to share our iphoto library, and have two users. I have followed apple's instructions ( and it hasn't work.


I has created a disk images. Changed ownerships, and changed permission. Before and after moving the iphoto file. I've tried starting a new iphoto file in the disk image.  I still get permission problems when I fast switch to the other user.


I have restarted and it still doesn't work.


Iphoto will tell me there are permission problem, and then fix them. I switch and there are still problems, and then it fixes them again.  I set up photostreams in each, and it will tell me the volume is full (there are 200 gb free)


Any solutions?


I called apple care, and they told me to put the file in a public or shared folder, which does the same thing.


Thanks for your help.



MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
