When I am working on a photo book in iPhoto for printing by apple, I usually work on my iMac. However, occasionally I would like to work on that book on my MacBook Pro. Even though both computers are using the same version of OS X (the latest) and are on the same apple ID, I cannot access the book on my MacBook Pro. Is there a way I can access it or am I stumped? It would be so convenient, especially when I am doing the text to work on the laptop.


iPhoto '11, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

Have you copied your iPhoto Library from the iMac to the MBP? Are your computers connected to a home network through which you can share files? This is configured through the Sharing preferences.

A book is just a series of entries in the Library database, so the only way to work on it with two machines is to have the library on both.
