I have a MacBook Pro (my personal machine) and an iMac (our family computer).

 

The iPhoto library housing all of our family photos lives on the iMac.

 

The iPhoto library on my MacBook Pro is currently empty.

 

I have an account on both machines.  I have associated the same Apple ID with both machines.

 

When I launch iPhoto on my MacBook Pro and attempt to turn on photo sharing (so that I can see My Photo Stream, as well as other shared streams), iPhoto informs me that "iCloud Photos for xxx@xxx is being used with another library named 'iPhoto Library'."

 

My iPhone, which is also affiliated with the same Apple ID, shows the streams just fine.

 

What can I do to remedy this situation?  I'd like to be able to view my shared streams on my MacBook Pro, while leaving the actual massive photo library on the iMac.


MacBook Pro (17-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mavericks (10.9.2)
