Best way to store iPhoto Library for 2 Mac’s + iPhone + camera

Trying to figure out the best way to have all my photos in one location. I make it a point to upload photos from my iPhone and camera to my desktop as my laptop has limited storage, but when I read an email from my laptop often I would like to save a pic. It would be great to be able to select a central storage on laptop for photos accessible by both desktop and laptop. I have MobileMe, but then I would have to download them into my desktop iPhoto library. And uploading camera photos not possible to MobileMe. Also when using laptop to surf would like to save pic to be stored on desktop iPhoto library. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I would store the photos on your desktop machine. If you need to occasionally store an image from off of your laptop, just save it to a place where you can get to it on your desktop machine — like your MobileMe iDisk. Then import them into iPhoto on your desktop when you get a chance — or use screen sharing if you are in a rush.

    I wish iPhoto handled multi-users better. But what I do is have only one computer add photos to iPhoto, and use chronosync to copy that computer’s iPhoto library to the other computer. I add photos to the computer which I use to sync my iPad.
