I want to use Lightroom on two Windows 10 computers using the same catalog.
The way I thought I should be able to do this is to put my Lightroom catalog files on my Creative Cloud Files folder which would mean that when I make changes it would end up getting synced across. Already it's a bit of a workaround since It means uploading and downloading a few hundred MB of file even I'm just changing 1 small thing (really there should be a way to do whole thing in LR itself). However I can't really do this since the lack of selective sync means that it wants to upload my entire catalog previews folder, this then completely fills up my creative cloud storage and then everything stops syncing.
According to this article the feature used to exist but was removed from both OSX and Windows because they couldn't get it to work on OSX. It must be possible to get it to work since I know that dropbox has this feature across all desktop platforms, would it be possible to have it added back (or at least enabled on windows)? Alternatively, can anyone suggest a workaround for me to use?
Th easiest way to work with 2 computers is with an external drive with the photos and catalog on, and simply move it between the computers. Not as smart as your idea but it does work and is used by a great many photographers on these forums and in the real world!
Some photographers have used Dropbox to achieve your ideal way to do things but can be problematic with synching etc. and having to wait for synching to finish before using the second computer to avoid conflicted catalogs and missing photos etc.
