Hi Chris_ROCK! I use classic on two computers like you are discussing. The way I achieved this is to use a third party cloud platform. (I use Microsoft OneDrive as I am on a PC). Once you have download and setup your sync platform, you will need to move/organize your pictures and catalogues to that location to sync with the cloud. Your photos will have to sync to the cloud before proceeding. Once fully synced, on your second device, you can then open up the catalogue in lightroom CC from your s...

Catalogs for Lightroom Classic must be stored on a local internal or external drive. LrC catalogs cannot be stored in the cloud or on a network drive.

Hi Chris_ROCK!

I use classic on two computers like you are discussing. The way I achieved this is to use a third party cloud platform. (I use Microsoft OneDrive as I am on a PC).


Once you have download and setup your sync platform, you will need to move/organize your pictures and catalogues to that location to sync with the cloud. Your photos will have to sync to the cloud before proceeding. Once fully synced, on your second device, you can then open up the catalogue in lightroom CC from your synced location. As you preview your photos in the library, it will download those photos to be edited live.

 

You have to make sure you only have lightroom open on one device at a time with this method. When you are done working, close it and verify the catalogue has synced before opening on your other device. That will make sure that you are always working form the latest synced catalogue file na dnot accidentally overwriting wiht an old catalogue.

 

Others may have this feature, but I like OneDrive because it has a “free up space” option where I can remove local files to save space on my computer but it keeps them stored in the cloud still so any other device and reach the originals if needed. They will just re-download if I need to hop in to that catalogue again. It has worked well for me! I also lets me have mulitple catalogues for my pictures rather than one for all of them at once. I like that better for organization.
Hope that helps! I’m happy to try to answer further questions if need be fore this.

Hi Chris 486,

thank you for your detailed description. I understood everything. I only hoped that it would be possible to use the adobe cloud somehow.


So it will only work for me the way you described it. I will also use the path as you described.
