Files shared among all users on same machine

I am running Ubuntu 10.4 I am coming from a windows background and I want to know what is the proper way to share files among multiple users on the same Linux box. In this particular case, I will be sharing jpg images.

I do not have any shares defined and I am not (to my knowledge) running Samba.

You would add the users to a group and then change ownership of the files to the group, and give the group whatever permissions are required, and then chmod the directories to g+s which will keep the permissions sane.
