I'm trying to share the iPhoto library across two accounts, but following the step-by-step directions in this article yields complete failure at Step 6, when it announces "The disk image should automatically mount" which means nothing to me. Double-click what if it hasn't mounted? Where? And, you can't drag the iPhoto Library anywhere from the Finder list, so how do you drag it at all to a new location?


Yet another example of an Apple walkthrough that doesn't work.

    Amusing. You don't understand concepts like mounting disks and don't know how to drag the iPhoto Library, yet it's Apple who have created a walkthrough that doesn't work? No chance that it might be a lack of basic knowledge on your part? No?


    A disk is said to mount when it becomes available in the Finder so you can drag things to or from it.


    And the iPhoto Library is as draggable as any other object in the Finder, so I have no idea what you're referring to there.


    Perhaps this is beyond your computer comfort zone and you might need to take a class.
