Hey,

 

I've been looking into solution for syncing up part of my work on laptop with master workstation.

Scenario:

1. workstation with hungred of photos and large catalog

2. laptop with small catalog with only pictures that are currently being edited

 

Latop and workstation catalogs are not the same in content, workstation is kind'a master that holds everything and laptop is just on daily basis used and photos are edited and removed from catalog. Laptop became my main editing machine where workstation holds everything and is used to make final corrections where all photos remain.

 

I would like my work on laptop automatically to sync up with workstation catalog.

 

Current solution that i use:

Whenever i'm done with editing, i'm exporting the work as catalog and then importing it into workstation. But that is of course manual.

 

Expected solution (hybrid)

I put edited photos in the collection that is synced up with master workstation on which i can pull them out from collection and store in proper folders. Then i can again remove photos from collection to make space for new work.

 

Problem is that i can sync up only 1 catalog that will sync up 30k photos that are synced up by master workstation. Is there any way to prevent syncing up all photos on laptop and just do 1 folder syncup and have same catalog used on both ends but with different content? Not sure if i was clear...

 

If that's not available is it possible to get thys type of hybrid feature?

"I would like my work on laptop automatically to sync up with workstation catalog."

 

Lightroom Classic does not do this. The newer software named Lightroom which stores your photos in the cloud does do this.

 

"Current solution that i use:

This is the correct solution for Lightroom Classic.

Yes i know that Adobe Lightroom does this, but it does not have all the capabilities of CC yet.

 

I know about this magic import/export, but thought that there is something in between like sync up via catalog and then just move them into correct folder.

There is nothing like this when you are using Lightroom Classic.

The easiest way to accomplish what you are looking for is  to have the catalog AND the images on an external hard drive that can be moved between the two computers. I know, that isn't ideal. But if you want to use Lightroom Classic, and want to edit the images on  two different computers, that is the easiest way to do it.

I was counting that will be able to use adobe cloud space for which i'm paying for.
