Syncing Classic/Lightroom

So this is numbing my mind. 

I've got 500-1000 shots I'd like to sync and share with a client. They are all currently on Classic (Desktop). The easiest way I can see to share them would be to sync them to Lightroom then make the album open to them to browse... 

 

When I go to sync, it downloads all of my personal photos to the Lightroom Catologue I'm using for my client, at the same time, or maybe before? uploading the photos I want to upload and sync. 

Is there a way of getting around this?! I've also noticed that it says you can only sync one catalogue. What does this mean?! 

thanks.

Sync: Lr-Classic <> Lr-Classic?  Via the Cloud- No!

This can only be done by sharing an Exported Catalog with the image files and transfer by another method- Dropbox, External Drive, etc.

Catalog on multiple computers?

 

Sync: Lr-Classic > Web Browser? Via the Cloud- Yes, in a limited way.

Classic syncs UP proxy (Smart Preview) files from a Collection to be viewed in a web browser given a link to the 'Album' of the Collection of photos.

My example- https://adobe.ly/2LcgALI

 

And then there is a way of sharing Comments and Feedback, but it is not a Classic to Classic share!

Share photos for comments and feedback in Lightroom Classic

 

" .. only sync one catalogue ?.."

Correct!  If you keep separate Catalogs for each Client, you are to be disappointed and in total confusion if you try.

If you change the 'one' catalog you want to sync (Classic will ask you- Do you really?), LrC attempts to download ALL your files in the Cloud, over again to the 'new' catalog that you sync (something I do not understand).

 

"So this is numbing my mind." And me also!!

Personally (as an amateur with intermediate knowledge of Lightroom) I do not believe that the 'Cloud' is a suitable option for Professionals wanting to 'Sync'.

 

 

 

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 10.4, Photoshop 22.5, Lightroom 4.4, Windows-10 Nikon DSLR.
