Chapter 8. Sharing Photos > To share photos among Macs

To share photos among Macs

1.
From the iPhoto menu, choose Preferences () and click the Sharing tab.

iPhoto displays the Sharing preferences (Figure 8.4).

Figure 8.4. Turn on photo sharing in the Sharing pane of iPhoto's Preferences window.


2.
Select Share My Photos, and then select either Share Entire Library or Share Selected Albums.

3.
If you selected Share Selected Albums, select the albums you want to share in the list below (Figure 8.5).

Figure 8.5. You can restrict shared photos to specific albums, and you can require that users enter a password to access your shared photos.


4.
In the Shared Name field, enter a name for the album under which your shared photos will appear for everyone else.

5.
If you want to restrict access to your shared photos, enter a password in the Require Password field. You'll then have to give that password to approved users (Figure 8.5).

6.
Close the Preferences window.

✓ Tips

  • iPhoto automatically selects the Require Password checkbox when you type the password for the first time.

  • You can't select the Require Password checkbox if the field next to it is empty.

  • iPhoto sometimes complains that photo sharing can't be enabled. If you encounter this problem, verify that your network is working, and quit and relaunch iPhoto before trying again.
