I am trying to use iCloud drive to store my Lightroom catalog. I want to access it from my iMac and my Macbook Pro, using smart previews. I have read about people doing this with dropbox, but iCloud drive is cheaper for 200gb a month. I exported a new catalog of my images to the iCloud drive folder on one computer. When I open the iCloud drive on the other computer the files are there with the download symbol next to them. Does this mean I have to download to my computer to use with Lightroom? And if so, what do I need to do to sync my changes?
Thanks for any help you may have.
For the record do not try and use iCloud drive with lightroom. Every time you tweak a file you need to repload entire catalog.
