I'm a Creative Cloud subscriber and often switch between my workstation and my laptop. It would be great if the settings and presets managed in Adobe Lightroom would be automatically synchronized between all devices connected to the same Creative Cloud account.

Agree, it would be great if this worked the same way presets, brushes, etc. can be synced between Photoshop on multiple devices.

Totally! Really surprised Adobe hasn't done this already like it has with the other major applications. Trying to backup and sync all my preferences, settings, presets, catalogs across multiple PCs is a right pain. I'm having to use SyncBack to copy settings to OneDrive and then do the reverse on my laptop to get it to work. Pretty convoluted!

As with most software Adobe, I wish I could sync my main parameter developement brush ..... in the creative cloud so you can recover them easily on another workstation, for example.

Autosave the Presets, Profiles, etc in the personal cloud account, the same for photoshop actions, etc.

Cause from time to time it could happen that you crash your computer and they all gone as I know....

If once the personal created tools, presets, action are saved in the cloud there would also be a possibility to import them in Lightroom mobile maybe.

If I'm working in the field on a laptop, I'd like to be able to use the same keywords, tags and other metadata that my 'main' catalog has.

If I can sync this information then when I re-combine the laptop's catalog with the main one, I don't have to go through tagging & keyword cleanup.

Eiher sync settings through Adobe ID / Creative Cloud, or allow a simple 'export settings' and 'import settings' option.

This feature is SO LONG overdue, especially since workspace settings, presets, development shortcuts, watermarks, camera raw profiles (x-rite camera/ACR profiles) etc are LESS straight-forward to find than say "photos" which Adobe has focused on.

Of course, photos take more space, so by focusing on uploading and syncing photos, that gives them the ability to charge for storage space...

Where as the ability/option to name workspace and sync among multiple computers would only be a great feature enhancement but would not bring them a new revenue stream, which is all they care about, NOT providing us with the best program possible.

You know insulting someone ("greedy bastards!") isn't usually the best way to get them to do what you want. Try honey instead of vinegar?

Hi, I don't know if the developers in Adobe reads it but I would like to request a way to sync Photoshop and Lightroom in both, my laptop and my desktop. The way it is now if I install something in one I have to remember to install in the other as well. I wish it was authomactical. Thanks
