Okay, so here is my Mac query: I have set up user accounts for me and my daughter, but how do I make things like, documents, iphoto, and itunes accessible to both of us? I may have done this with itunes (maybe??) but I cannot figure out how to do it with iphoto, as there does not seem to be the same set up options that I found under itunes. Also, we may have messed this whole process up, because my daughter put photos under her account; should they have been put under the administrative account? Oh I don't know! Help! THANK YOU!!
