Hi I have all my photos on an external drive. I want to edit my photos on my desktop at home and then also be able to work on them on my laptop when mobile. My catalog is stored on my external hard drive. But changes I have made to photographs on my laptop don't seem to have been saved onto my external hard drive when I looked on lightroom tonight on my desk top.
The file I looked at tonight is a native import of the original photograph not showing any of the editing I did earlier today.
Any suggestions on where I'm going wrong.
The adjustments that you make in Lightroom is stored within the catalog itself. It does not make any changes directly to the original files.
So you will not find any changes on to the original images.
If you are not able to see the edit in Lightroom itself, please make sure you have opened the same catalog from the external hard drive on both the computers.
Hope this helps.
Many thanks that's exactly what was the issue. I had two catalogue files.
