Chapter 9. Sharing Online—and on Your Network > Photo Sharing Across Accounts

9.5. Photo Sharing Across Accounts

Mac OS X is designed from the ground up to be a multiple-user operating system. You can set up Mac OS X with individual user accounts so that everyone must log in. When the Mac starts up, in other words, you have to click your account name and type a password before you can start using it.

Upon doing so, you discover the Macintosh universe just as you left it, including your icons on the desktop, Dock configuration, desktop picture, screen saver, Web browser bookmarks, email account, fonts, startup programs, and so on. This accounts feature adds both convenience (people don't have to wade through other people's stuff) and security (people can't wade through other people's stuff). As you can imagine, this feature is a big deal in schools, businesses, and families.
