Syncing multiple catalogs

I have Lightroom Classic installed on 2 computers. I have used it here and there to edit photos. I'm now realizing that I shoud have been syncing those photos on both computers... I turned sync on on my desktop computer and it did its thing (whatever that is). It seemed to work. I tried to also turned syncing on on my laptop computer, but got a message "you can only sync a single lightroom catalog." That makes sense. I didn't realize that I was doing it wrong and now I have edited photos on different computers. I'd like to get them all together somehow and have them all syced up across devices. How might I achieve this?

Lightroom-Classic is 'Old School' when it comes to syncing- something it was never designed to do, and will possibly always have limitations.

Correct, you can only 'Sync' one Catalog to the Adobe Cloud Ecosystem. If you try to sync another catalog, you can, but you get the warning message,  and it causes complications when the active LrC Catalog attempts to (automatically) download (to the computer with the synced catalog) ALL full-size files that you have imported to the Lightroom Cloud.

 

LrC catalogs on two computers basically can not be 'synced', -the catalogs are independent of each other, although there are methods to use one catalog on both machines.
