Can I share my iphoto pictures with AT

Can I share my iphoto pictures with my AT&T Uverse tv?

Yes, this is exactly how I use iPhoto on my system.
You do need to update the permissions on the iPhoto directory after it's moved to the Shared folder. the default permissions will only permit your account to fully access the files, your wife's account will get errors or not see thumbnails correctly when accessing the pictures from iPhoto in her account.
After moving the iPhoto Library into Shared (and with iPhoto closed), Get Info on the iPhoto Library folder and change the Others access to Read+Write. Let it apply to all enclosed folders, also. Then hold down the Option key while starting iPhoto and choose the Shared version of the folder as your Library. Repeat the iPhoto launch w/option key on the other account as well and each user will access the same set of pictures, albums, keywords, etc. Just make sure you don't open iPhoto from both accounts at the same time. Close iPhoto before walking away from the computer or letting the other person logon.

  • How can I share my iPhoto library with my wife's iPad?

    Is it possible to share my iPhoto library (Yosemite) with my wife's iPad? She doesn't have a separate mac, but she does have her own apple ID.

    No
    You can share selected photos using PhotoStream - you can not share the library
    Next year the Photos App for the Mac should be able to share the library on iCloud using iCloud photo library

  • How can you share a iPhoto library with another account user

    I have recently seen the light and swapped from Windows to my lovely new iMac. However I am rather confused how I can configure my iPhoto library so my wife can view the same library in her account on the same machine (this was a simple thing within Windows, using shared folders). Am I missing something or do I have to duplicate the same library and place into my wife's account and then update each time we upload some photo's? Please help!

    This may not be the "neatest" solution possible, but it's one that works. Just as iPhoto makes it easy to share photos between computers on the same network, you can also share photos between accounts on the same computer; but you'll have to be logged in with iPhoto running.
    1) Configure iPhoto in your account for photo sharing (from iPhoto, select Preferences > Sharing> Share my photos).
    2) Enable fast user switching from System Preferences > Accounts > Login Options. This is the key to the process, which will allow you to remain logged in while your wife is also logged in. It's also a very handy feature if you and your wife use the computer a lot from your own accounts.
    3) Enable "Personal File Sharing" and "Remote Apple Events" from System Preferences > Sharing > Services. [I had already done this step, so I'm not sure if it's strictly necessary]
    4) With iPhoto up and running in your account, use Fast User Switching to log into your wife's account (ie, you remain logged-in). [The Fast User Switching menu will be in the upper right of the main menu bar.]
    5) From her iPhoto preferences, select Sharing > "Look for shared photos" if it's not already switched on.
    Your photos will magically appear in the left hand column of your wife's iPhoto application using the name you designated in your copy of iPhoto.
    Caveats: performance is not very good, you must be logged in and have iPhoto running, HP printers (if you have one) don't work well with fast user switching
    Other solutions might be possible by "drilling a hole" into your account by altering the Unix permissions. I've used this technique to make my iTunes library available to other users on my machine. Such a solution would no doubt improve performance.
    Finally, there are third-party products that allow you to manage multiple iPhoto libraries. I've never used these, but they might allow you to load the iPhoto library from another account assuming permissions are properly set.
    Hope this is of some use; I'm sorry if it's a little more complicated than you might have expected.

  • Can I share my iPhoto library with other users accounts on my computer?

    My wife and I both have our own user account on the computer. Right now all the photos are on my account. If we put the iPhoto library in users/shared will this allow us both to access the photos?
    Thanks.

    Yes, this is exactly how I use iPhoto on my system.
    You do need to update the permissions on the iPhoto directory after it's moved to the Shared folder. the default permissions will only permit your account to fully access the files, your wife's account will get errors or not see thumbnails correctly when accessing the pictures from iPhoto in her account.

  • Can I share one iPhoto library with all the users in my iMac?

    I moved the library to the shared folder and gave it 775 permissions but when I try opening it with the second users it asks if I want to fix permissions. I click OK and after a while it tells me it is locked... which kind of tells me I won't be able to share it but I wanted to confirm... Thank you.

    No, you cannot share your photo library in a shared folder. That will give permission problems.
    You need to move your iPhoto library to a disk volume or a disk partition where permissions are ignored.

    Have you considered to use iCloud Photo Sharing to let your family see selected photos?

  • HT1198 Can I share my iPhoto library with other logons on the same computer

    My iMac has three separate logons for members of my family. However, it would be very useful if we call all access the same iPhoto library. Is this possible?

    To give others selective access to your iPhoto library, you have the option of using Shared Photo Streams in iCloud, if the privacy implications don't bother you.
    There are more drawbacks to Shared Streams, than the privacy problem,Linc. Shared streams, imho, are perfect for showing off a small selection of photos, but nearly all work invested into the iPhoto library will be lost this way. Titles, caption, ratings do not transfer, and once added to the stream, you cannot rearrange the sequence of photos. Edits are no longer reversible.  If several family members are sharing photos this way on the same computer, they will all have to create their own photo libraries, create redundant photos, and have to recreate all the metadata. It is wasteful, if they really want to share a common iPhoto library.
    The only practical way to do what you want is to let the two family members who need write access log in to the same account to make changes.
    I am curious, Linc. Do you see problems with Apple's own recommendation, that LarryHN linked to -  - iPhoto: Sharing libraries among multiple users  ?

  • HT1198 Can you share your iphoto library with two users? and can they use there own apple id for photo stream?

    My wife and i have two iphones and one mac mini, we basically want to share our photos and music but also have our individual settings, so I have set up two user accounts, i have managed to share itunes successfully however iphoto'11 will not seem to let us both use it without it needing 'repairing'? any help out there?

    You'll need to put the Library on an external disk or Disk Image set to ignore owner ship and permissions.

  • How to share administrator iPhoto library with other users on same iMac?

    How to share administrator iPhoto library with other users on same iMac?

    This is the part I'm referring to:
    If you want the other user to be able to see the pics, but not add to, change or alter your library, then enable Sharing in your iPhoto (Preferences -> Sharing), leave iPhoto running and use Fast User Switching to open the other account. In that account, enable 'Look For Shared Libraries'. Your Library will appear in the other source pane.
    Any user can drag a pic from the Shared Library to their own in the iPhoto Window.
    Remember iPhoto must be running in both accounts for this to work.
    The library stays in the Pictures folder for this.

  • HT201317 I have a MobileMe account and have shared many MobileMe Galleries.  MobileMe Galleries are going away in June.  How can I share a photo album with others using iCloud?

    I have a MobileMe account and have shared many MobileMe Galleries.  MobileMe Galleries are going away in June.  How can I share a photo album with others using iCloud?

    The new ios version of iPhoto allows sharing.  Here's a blurb from Apple's web site:
    There’s the old way of creating photo galleries, then there’s the iPhoto way. Select a group of photos and iPhoto automatically flows them into a beautiful journal that’s fun to personalize and share online. Touch a photo to make it bigger or smaller. Or drag it to a different spot on the screen. iPhoto adjusts the page around whatever you’re doing, so your journal always looks great. You can even add captions, maps, dates, and weather — giving family and friends the big picture at a glance.
    More things you can do:
    With iPhoto, there’s more than one way to share a photo. Post pictures directly to Facebook, Flickr, or Twitter. Play an impromptu slideshow on your iPad or iPhone. Or stream photos to your HDTV to give your big moments room to shine.
    I have not used ios version of iPhoto to share "journals" and I'm not sure this is part of iCloud or not.  You'll have to do a google search on "ios iphoto" and read up of this journal thing.  As far as I know, this is the only way of sharing photos.  I'm not sure whether other friends use a browser to view these journals or whether they need something special.  Any way - search around to find answers.

  • How to share an iPhoto library with an iPad?

    You can not - they have nothing in common except the name - you can share photos using PhotoStream - you can not sare an iPhoto library

  • Can i share an iPhoto library between 2 computers ???

    Can i share an iPhoto library between 2 computers, it I store my library on a AS drive connected to an AirPort Extrême Base Station ?

    on a AS drive
    Do you mean NAS drive? No.
    iPhoto needs to have the Library sitting on disk formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Users with the Library sitting on disks otherwise formatted regularly report issues including, but not limited to, importing, saving edits and sharing the photos.
    Will it be wireless? That's good for viewing but...
    A strong warning: If you're trying to edit the Library (that is, make albums, move photos around, keyword, make books or slideshows etc.) or edit individual photos in it via Wireless be very careful. Dropouts are a common fact of wireless networking, and should one occur while the app is writing to the database then your Library will be damaged. Simply, I would not do this with my Libraries.

  • How do you share thousands of pictures with text and captions outside of PSE?  (PSE 4)

    One of my dad’s retirement passions is family genealogy and old family pictures.  Several years ago I gave my family PSE 4.0 for Christmas so that we could each have backup copies of our dad’s pictures.  Usually once per year, I made backup copies of everything and emailed the DVDs to my brothers and sisters.  Everyone knows the basic PSE 4 functions and share our dad's enjoyment with the old family photos.
    My problem is that my dad is running out of pictures to scan.  He wants to “share” or “show” his photos with others so that he can “borrow” their photo albums in order to scan their photos.  He plans to attend a hometown high school reunion later this fall.  He hopes to "collect" photo albums from cousins and classmates.  I have been struggling with this for several days without any good ideas.
    The scanned pictures lack any text (added as a layer?) or captions.  Creating a slideshow (on my dad’s computer is slow).  Also, a slideshow doesn’t let others select individual pictures to save from the slide show
    He has old pictures pre-PSE 4 that allowed him to add captions directly to the picture when it was scanned.  I never liked this approach as it "destroyed" the actual picture but these old pictures are more easily shared as individual pictures.
    How do you share thousands of pictures with text and captions outside of PSE?  Can you save or export a composite picture with all the layers?
    Thanks in advance for your help and replies.

    I think it is one of the printer option screens that gives me the choice of tabbed 4x6. All of the choices specifiy HP or Other so I am pretty sure it is printer software that offers me this choice.
    Make sure your image has a 4x6 aspect ratio. I have been quite happy with the tabbed 4x6. Just need to remember to load the paper with the tab last.
    So, in elements you set to 4x6, in printer options you should be able to choose 4x6 tabbed paper.

  • Can I share one iTunes Library with multiple computers on a network?

    Can I share one iTunes Library with multiple computers on a network?
    note: one library universally shared, not Home Sharing (one library each, shared to each.)
    I want to share one library stores on my server and access it through various local computers. When I buy a song from a computer (non-server), I want it to be added to the library (stored on server). I want it to auto copy to my server, for organization. I want to be able to sync my phone from any computer.
    Most of this I can do, if i figure out how to use one universal library for all my computers.
    Any ideas how I can do this?

    eyeinit,
    You can authorize your iTunes account on up to 5 computers at a time.
    However, purchased music is downloaded to the first machine to download it, but these articles have more information on moving your music between authorized computers:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93063
    This one is for moving all your music using an iPod as a storage drive

    Hope this helps,
