  • How to share iMovie library with other accounts without duplicating files?

    I'm looking for information on how to share an imovie library with other accounts on the same computer without duplicating files.  If I  copy imovie files to the shared folder each user is required to import the files to their library which duplicates the files.  It would be nice if imovie had the option of including events/projects shared in the share folder.  Is there an option to change everyone's default library to a shared folder?  Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you!

    The easiest way to do this would be to atach an external drive. The external drive should be formatted as Mac OS Extended (journaled). If you have a drive that is formatted some other way, you can reformat it using Disk Utility. It can be Thunderbolt, Firewire, or USB, but Firewire or Thunderbolt will give best performance for video.
    Now you need to move the projects and events over to the external drive. This must be done from within iMovie.
    In iMovie, click VIEW/EVENTS BY DISK.
    Now, in the Project Library View, hold down the command key while dragging the small icon for each project to the small icon for the external drive. Now select one of these projects and click FILE/CONSOLIDATE MEDIA. This will enable you to move associated Events, Photos, and Music to the external drive. Repeat for all projects.
    If any events are left over at the end of this, because they are not used in any of your projects, you can move them to the external drive by working in the Event Library list. Hold down the Command Key while dragging the small icon for the Event in the Event Library List to the small icon for the External Drive. Repeat until all the Events are moved.
    Now you can edit these movies on any user account.
    For future clips that you import from a camera, be sure to select the external drive as the location.

  • How to share iPhoto library with other ID

    i'm sure there is similar post/response to this but been trolling the message boards and can't find a similar situation.
    the scenario goes like this.
    - single macbookpro 10.7.2
    - user1 is primary/admin user in which is owner of laptop
    - pictures are in iPhoto v9.2 under user1
    - user1 does all the pic uploads/edits/etc as the primary user of the macbook
    - user1 is not a hardcore photo editor type and just primarily uses iPhoto for basic cropping and organization/viewing
    - pics sync to user1 iPhone/iPad(iOS5) via PhotoStream and sync'ing of albums
    - wife has her own iPhone, separate apple ID and uses user2 on the same macbookpro above that user1 is using
    what we are trying to get done...
    - wife wants to be able to see albums on her iPhone and also have ability from laptop/iPhone to select pics to upload into her facebook as needed
    - bonus would be if wife can also view my/user1 PhotoStream
    looking for any assistance on how to get this done painlessly with least possibility in corrupting iPhoto library in which user1 uses and avoid having to create/copy all pics into user2 iphoto library and waste HD space.
    if it is easier to re-send a link to someone else that has conquered similar challenge, pls send across.  much appreciated.

    The thing is, the whole point of having separate accounts is to keep your data seprate from hers. So, any attempt to overcome this can be kludgy.
    For iPhoto 09 (version 8.0.2) and later:
    What you mean by 'share'.
    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.
    If you want the other user to have the same access to the library as you: to be able to add, edit, organise, keyword etc.
    Quit iPhoto in both accounts. Move the Library to the Users / Shared Folder. (I would note that some Lion users are finding Permissions issues with this.)
    (You can also use an external HD set to ignore permissions, a Disk Image or even partition your Hard Disk.)
    In each account in turn: Double click on the Library to open it. (You may be asked to repair the Library Permissions.) From that point on, this will be the default library location. Both accounts will have full access to the library, in fact, both accounts will 'own' it.
    However, there is a catch with this system and it is a significant one. iPhoto is not a multi-user app., it does not have the code to negotiate two users simultaneously writing to the database, and trying will cause db corruption. So only one user at a time, and back up, back up back up.

  • How to share music library with other users using it's own iTunes hdd

    I have 183 gigs of music on my computer. I have it all on it's own hard drive not the OS or "C" drive. I'm pulling my hair trying to configure other users on my computer to access the music on windows Vista
    Cant find any info to help tell me how to do that when the music is on it's own HDD. Can anyone help?

    I don't think you have to drag anything anywhere.
    Let's just say your music is on a drive named G:
    I assume you've set its permissions for everyone. I also assume you can already listen to the files from the G: drive in itunes on your account - so you don't need to consolidate anything; iTunes is already working on your account and you just need to set some other users up to do the same.
    From the section named "On Windows"
    You're already at step 3, so continue with you add them to their library.

  • Share Pages Document with other computers.

    I have computer A and want to use Computer B and take a "pages" made document and put it on a flash drive. what is the best way to do this? Should I just export to .doc and then email to myself and open in pages? What is the best way to move pages files from one computer to another.

    patrick,
    Now I understand. Whether you put it on a flash drive or email it, you'll need to compress it first, since Pages documents are actually pseudo folders. It's easy enough to do. Just control-click on the file in the Finder, then select Make Archive of "Your File Name." Put that archive on the flash drive or email it.
    One thing to note: you'll need Pages on the other computer in order to read the file.

    You can share it with other Macs under your control (not your neighbor's).  You just need to be logged in under the buying AppleID for updates or to download again.

  • How do I share my playlists with other accounts/users on my Mac?

    How do I share my playlists with other accounts/users on my Mac?

    Hello,
    I have a similar question, which I posted 8perhaps inappropriately) in the Home Sharing discussion: https://discussions.apple.com/message/17405588#17405588
    The problem I have is that it simply doesn't work and the question I have is how you do not move the the iTunes Library file or the iTunes Library.xml file when they are actually in the folder you are told by the article to move in the first place.

  • When I'm using a browser (like Safari) in Yosemite, how can I shrink it and share my desktop with other applications?

    I have an iMac, and after installing Yosemite (OS 10.10), all my browsers (like Safari) no longer share the screen with other applications, like Word or even Calculator.  How can I shrink Safari (or any browser) and share my desktop with other applications?

    When I'm using any browser (at the moment, it's Safari), I am unable to resize the window.  The browser BECOMES my entire desktop.  And if I open another application, suddenly the browser vanishes to the right, so I can only see the other app.  AND my dock disappears into a solid black space below the screen, which I can penetrate with my curser (after dragging the curser back and forth above and below the black space until the dock eventually reappears.  But if I select any app in the browser to open, then Safari vanishes instantly to the right of the screen.  I've tried to resize Safari (and Firefox and Chrome) by moving the curser to the bottom right of the browser, but that old standby doesn't seem to work anymore.  The browser takes up all of the screen, except for a small portion of the top, where my curser can reveal Safari's old menus, and the bottom of the screen, which is entirely black until I can locate my dock by dunking the curser up and down in the black ooze.
    I really want the old convenience of my Mac, where several programs can open side by side, but Yosemite seems to have precluded that possibility.  What can I do?

    Yes, mission control threw everything across the screen (which is way beyond anything I could figure out), but the real answer I needed came from Apple Tech Support, which I finally called, and I learned about the two arrows in the top righthand corner, when I held the cursor there, which turned blue and resized and released the browser from total domination of the screen.  Those two, opposite-pointing arrows allowed me to shrink the browser and let other applications be seen on the desktop.  But thank you for extending a helpful tip, which I can use another time.

    You can move the iTunes folder to a separate drive on your pc an then configure each account to use this drive / folder as iTunes library ... The problem is, that iTunes by default stores everything in your personal music folder which is separate for each user account in windows (and by default is on "C" drive).
    I create a separate partition on every pc/laptop (and map a drive name) where I store music, videos and other mass data. This will also keep the "C" drive small, which is backed up from time to time and so my backup is also small.

    How to share purchased music with friends on the internet.

    Find the song you want in Spotify or Youtube.  It may, but does not have to, match a song in your iTunes library.
    Right-click the title and choose "Copy HTTP link" (Spotify) or just copy the URL (Youtube). 
    Email the link to your friends.  They simply click on it and listen to the song.

  • How can I copy songs with metadata (added in iTunes) from my PC to my new iMac?

    I have iTunes 12.0.1 on my Windows PC. I'm about to get a new iMac (hooray!) and I'm beginning the process of transferring everything on my PC to my Mac. I've got all the documents, pictures, files, etc. covered, but now I have to make a copy of all of my music.
    Most of the music in my iTunes library is not bought through the iTunes Store (I download most of my songs from the Internet). Then, after saving the downloaded song to my computer, I go into iTunes on my computer and add the song. I also add metadata like artist, album, genre, album artwork, etc. to the song in iTunes. What concerns me is that only the songs in iTunes have this metadata: the original downloaded files I saved onto my computer don't have any metadata.
    I really don't want to have to go through the long and tedious process of adding artist/album names, genre, etc. to every single song in my iTunes library on my new iMac. How can I copy songs with metadata (added in iTunes) from my PC to my new iMac?
    Thank you so much for any help!

    Hello! I'd like to learn more about Home Sharing. To do this, would both my PC (which I hope to get rid of) and my new iMac need to be plugged in?
    Also, after Home Sharing with the old PC is initiated, I understand that all my songs would appear on my iMac. Is there a way to copy all of these (with album artwork, name, artist, etc.) directly to the iMac's hard drive and then disconnect home sharing so I can get rid of my PC?
    Thank you!
