- The Catalog will not be synced over the Creative Cloud, however I would also not suggest you to keep the catalog in Dropbox , as it is on Network.
- And keeping Catalog on Network is not recommended, please have a look at the article : Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Help | How Lightroom catalogs work
- So whenever you download the latest version of Lightroom on the computer , Lightroom detects the catalog on the computer that was last opened and gives you the prompt to upgrade the catalog to be compatible with the latest version of Lightroom.
Thanks for the quick reply Tanuj.
To your first point: I have seen several references to using Dropbox to store your catalog as a way to share it between computers. Here is a link to one such post - http://terrywhite.com/lightroom-dropbox/ Also, I keep my LR backups on my computer (and then backup those backups onto my server)
To your second point: I already know how catalogs work, but thanks for the link.
To your third point: I understand "...Lightroom detects the catalog on the computer that was last opened and gives you the prompt to upgrade the catalog..." I know from past experience a new version of LR detects the old catalog and asks if you want to upgrade it. The confounding part is that I never had LR on the MBP because it was a brand new computer. It had never had a LR catalog on it for the new LR version to detect. If it had, then I wouldn't be confused. But that's not what happened. I uploaded the new LR onto a brand new MBP. Upon doing that the new LR asked me if I wanted to import the catalog that is on my MP (a different computer). So my question was: how did the newly uploaded CC LR detect the catalog on my MP? I am hoping somebody can confirm my suspicion that it is because my MBP is connected to my MP via Wi-Fi, and that it has nothing to do with the Creative Cloud and LR. Make sense?
