I thought the purpose of this cloud is so that I can have my lightroom communicate on all of my devices. I installed the new adobe cloud lightroom on a brand new computer and have been creating collections and such on there. It is a free trial version. I then put the new lightroom on my laptop that has an older version lightroom. Even though I am signing in with the same log in information that I created with adobe lightroom free trial on the other computer, is not syncing my catalog. It is "grabbing" my old catalog, and when I sync, it only syncs this old catalog on all my devices. Please help. I need my new catalog to sync on this laptop and across all of my devices. I don't understand why my user name and password wouldn't bring up my newer catalog when that is what I originally started with?
If you installed the Lightroom trial version on the older computer then you need to have the catalog and the images for the new version on that computer as well. You can go to adobe.Lightroom.com on the old computer and sign in with your Adobe ID and password and see the collections that you have synchronized on the new computer. And you will need to install Lightroom Mobile on your mobile devices such as your iPhone for iPad.
The collection created in the desktop version can only be synced to the Mobile version (Lightroom Mobile).
You can not sync a whole catalog between two computers that can only be achieved by manually moving the catalog using any external drive.
