Thank you but I don't understand what the silent installation allow me...
It’s for volume licensing. Maybe you wish to share a catalog which is really only possible by keeping images on an external hard drive and connecting to different machines. I don’t think it’s possible to share a catalog on a network with multiple users.
Lightroom Catalog is not set up to working from a server with multiple users.
never the less, this document might help you understanding the steps you can try to get it to work for multiple users,
however this can only be one user at a time. For every user you would need a license.
In Addition, you might provide the suggestion for Adobe Development, that this feature might be implaced for a new release:
Hope this helps.
Exactly. I wish to understand how I can share the same catalog with other people using Lightroom on their computer without connect every time the camera or the external harddisk. For example, the graphic designer, the copywriter and the videomaker that work into my team need to access at the same catalog... How can we do?
At the moment this is not possible. As the Catalog is 1-user only.
You can share the Catalog (and the Images, together as the Catalog is working as Database it does not contain the actual images)
But this would be an excesive workflow to do this everytime once some one updated the catalog.
My advise would be in this situation to better use Bridge CC.
This is a Navigator, once the users have access to the location where the images are stored,
They can preview and work on the images from the same location, by different users.
And they are able to modify (using Camera Raw for Raw files for instance)
Thank you very much for all advices!
By using Bridge, would another user be able to create a collection of images available in my catalog for me to develop and send them?
My problem is:
- I shoot, edit, deliver.
- My colleague choses the shots to publish.
- I want them to do the selection, not me.
So how can I do it with Lightroom?
The closest I have so far is to export all my pictures and my colleague gives me a list of filenames. But it's a waste of time for me, and a waste of time for them as they can't perform all the searches and filters that you can do in Lightroom.
Although the TEAM licensing does allow you to share Libraries for other programs from Adobe LR is not set up that way. LR is a Single user, Single PC photo cataloging and editing program. Each install of LR needs to have it own catalog file but the actual images can be on a Networked drive, either on/in another computer, NAS or server.
You can't easily share a LR catalog file between 2 different installs of LR.
Also I don't think LR alone would be covered under the Team licensing.
Go to the Main Adobe web page, click the Adobe heading at the top of this page, and then the Business Solutions link in the top set of links.
Sharing a catalog between 2 installs is easy. You put your catalog on a dropbox folder, your files on a NAS, and that's it.
What is not, is to find a way for someone to work freely on Lightroom, and then without an overflow of work let someone search and select photos from the catalog to request them from the first person.
I'm not sure my explanation of the problem is clear enough (really, as English is not my first language). I've not found any answer in Adobe's solutions (so far).
Yeah and if 2 people open and work on the same catalog at the same time and then both get synced back up to dropbox near the same time you will either corrupt the catalog or one of the uploaded syncs to DB won't have the edit made in the other install of LR.
Best of luck to you.
I know that. That's why I only use this setup to sync between my desktop and my laptop. That's why I'm looking for a way to safely work with someone.
But by looking at the way you answer me, I guess looking for a solution is out of line, is that it? Why don't you just tell me to get lost?
Thanks for your help and confirming that people on forums have not changed over time. Very professional of you.
It's not out of line. It just can't happen. The Team system if for companies, or a group of people (A Team) to work on documents in other Adobe products and share files and documents across that company, Team. That is where the TEAM comes into play.
LR was never intended for this and I doubt Adobe will ever implement it.
It has something to do with the LR catalog database system.
Actually a simple Google search for "Adobe Team license" tell you everything you need to know about it.
Hence the question: how to do it around Lightroom then. But don't bother.
As for the Google Search, not even close. Thanks anyway.
Your use of the word Team is misleading. There is no LR for teams.
Best of luck to you.
Am I the one who created the thread? Did I use once the word "team" except in this sentence?
Sorry didn't notice the original date of the thread and that you weren't the OP.
