    Techniques for storing photos on the cloud and not your computer?

    TheBobbyMiller Level 1

      Hi all!

      So, I have my lightroom photos all pointing to a folder that syncs on Dropbox.  That way I instantly have all my high res master photos in the cloud.

      However, as time has gone on, I'm running out of disk space.

      Is there a way to keep the integrity of the catalog while storing some photos on the cloud?  For example, if I want to store all photos from 2000-2011 in the cloud.  An easy way to do this would to use selective sync on dropbox and just disable those folders as folders I don't want on my computer.  However, wouldn't that screw up my lightroom catalog?  IE. Show a bunch of missing files?

       

      Right now the entire folder is clocking in at 100gb.  So, I'd love to get this down some!
