==============================
Some data is added to the image file
and some data is stored in Pictures.pd3.
You can right click an image and go to..
Properties / Summary / Advanced...to
see the included data.

You are correct that each user has their
own Pictures.pd3 database. It should
be found at:

C:Documents and Settings
Local SettingsApplication DataMicrosoft
PODPictures.pd3

Maybe the following info will offer some ideas:

Sharing Digital Image Suite
2006 Database between users

The method in the article is for multiple
users on a single machine. Maybe you can
adapt it to your network.

The library is designed for each user to have
a separate .pd3 file. Issues may develop if
both users access and edit the shared file at
the same time.
