    How to transfer (or FTP) an iPhoto album to a friend
    I created an album in iPhoto and I want my friend to be able to put it on her computer.
    Can I either:
    1. Email her the album so that she can just import it into iPhoto on her Mac?, or
    2. Can I set up a FTP between my computer and hers and she can just log into my computer and download the album?


    Thanks,

    J.

    That would likely exceed the size limits of your email service.

    Yes.
    Setting up your Mac as an FTP Server

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Specs:
    2.8 GHz 15" MacBook Pro OS X 10.7.x & some old Macs
    The other option you can do is use services like Box and share files between each other through third party servers. It's made for people who routinely share large files between each other. This way you don't even need to have your computer on to share files. Your friend can download whenever she wants.
