Multiple Users on a single Mac
« on: November 28, 2007, 07:21:08 PM »
I really like PM a lot!  I have several family members that use the same machine, and we share all our photos.
Is it possible to share the same database? So that if I rate a picture, everyone else
sees the same thing?  All the photos are in a common, shared area.
Where is all the data held for PM, and can I set it up so we can
all use the same info?

Thanks

There is no database.  The ratings, color classes, tags, crops, etc. are either stored in the images themselves or in sidecar files.  All you need to do is browse the images from each account and you'll see all of your edits.
