Hi, I'm reasonably seasoned with Lightroom, but have just started using a laptop while traveling and loading photos onto it in Lightroom. I'd like to be able to work with the photos on the laptop while traveling, including tagging and adjusting settings, then transfer them into my desktop catalog and delete them from the laptop. Is there a writeup anywhere on how to do that? I've searched the web, but come up only with old posts from people who developed workarounds. Any guidance would be much appreciated!
On the laptop, select the desired photos in Lightroom (could be ALL photos), then use the menu command File->Export as Catalog, check "Include Negatives", select location for files to be written to.
On the desktop, open Lightroom, select File->Import from Another Catalog, and then select the catalog created by the laptop.
Perfect, thanks for the help!
