I have a new imac with snow leapord on it and have created a seperate account for myself and one for my fiance.

I'm trying to share iphoto between the 2 users. When I open it on my account I see it as if its a first time using it. Was able to see the pictures by sharing the file.

Is there a way to make iphoto appear the same in both accounts so the events, albums, and everything else appear the same? Would like to do the same with imovie and itunes.
QUOTE Thanks
