Common folder between two users (same machine)

My family members all want to access our photo archive, and perhaps music
files from individual user's accounts.  How can I set this up?

Here's what I thought of so far, but I think it's not going to work nicely:
two ideas are
   - set up a user "common" where a partition is mounted to
/home/common/photos, or some such.
   - set up symlinks in each user's directory to folders that other users
may be allowed to access

 Is there a standard way to do this?  I don't wnat to share folders with a
windows computer.
