I have y fotos and lightroom installed on a desk top computer ( MAC ). As I travel quite a lot I would like to work on my laptop ( MAC) whenI am travelling but then sync my work with my desktop when I return home.
Ho do I do this??
Sadly, Lr doesn't yet support syncing catalogs. However, you could put your catalog on an external hard drive which is connected to the computer your working on at any time. Many Lr users find this approach is fairly simple to manage. Alternatively, you can keep a copy of your catalog on both computer. This first segment of this video Using Lightroom on Two Computers - YouTube describes describes how. If you're using Lr5 or higher then you don't actually need to copy the actual photos as the Smart Previews can be used a proxy files. The smart previews are much smaller, thus a much more efficient way of carrying your photos around on the laptop.
