Question User can't access file that is accessible by a group she's in


I Want to be able to let my girlfriend view my pictures folder while at the same time keeping my sister out. So I created a group "JessAndI" and made myself and her apart of that group. I changed the group of the directory recursively to "JessAndI" and gave the permissions to 770. She still isn't able to access or even view the directory unless i change the permissions to allow others whether it be 774 or 777. Am i doing something wrong? I've checked and double checked to make sure she is part of the group and the group is the group on the directory and all the sub-directories and files.

IIRC when you add a user to a group the user needs to log out and log back in again for it to take effect. Did you do that?
