Well, does your wife need digiKam? You could just install samba and share your 
images as a network drive (maybe read only?).

If she want to use digikam:
Can she use linux too? If not install digikam under windows and use the images 
via network share.

If she want's to use the digiKam databse too:
I got no real clue about the storage in digiKam. Maybe it's storing whole 
paths as amarok does … then it would be the best to mount the files on the same 
path on every client which is quite hard with linux/windows :/ Maybe give her 
just read only access to your digikam db and see if it's going to brake smth?
