What is the smartest way for users to share pictures across a SBS network?
ie everyone can contribute and view the pictures.
Can this solution build off of user/picture folders or possibly public/picture folder?

You could put all the pictures in C:\Users\Public\Pictures on each Vista PC, then from the Network and Sharing Center enable the option to share Public files/folders.

If this is a domain network, it might be better to just have a file share on a server that will contain everyone's pictures - ie \\fileserver1\pictures  - you could map this to a network drive if you wanted to as well.

Thanks, Is there anyway to make the solution slightly more elegant?  This is a domain network.  Can you have the same public folder from a client represent a folder that is actually on the server, much like the user folders are already?

I don't think you can map the Public Folder to a network share in the same way as local profile folders.

ie - Goto the 'username' folder which has Documents, Downloads, etc in it.
Right click Pictures - Properties - Location tab
You can change the location there for each folder.
