Hi - my first post here!

 

I've been using Lightroom for I guess about 10 years. I've recently divided my catalog file in order to differentiate two very different parts of my business.

 

So I now have 2 catalogs. One is synced and one is not, since LR will only allow one to be synced.

 

PROBLEM: I want to sync the catalog that isn't currently synced, but I can't find a way to "unsync" the one that is synced. I've deselected the synced collections but that doesn't seem to do it.

 

Please help!

 

Paul.

You can indeed not 'unsync' a catalog, but 'pause' is the same. Remember that if you sync another catalog, all the existing images in the cloud which are not yet in that catalog will be downloaded from the cloud into Lightroom Classic. If you don't want that, then either remove them from the cloud first, or let them download and then delete them from Lightroom Classic (which will delete them from the cloud too). You cannot have images in the cloud and not in the synced Lightroom Classic catalog....

You have to unlog from the catalog you do not want to sync anymore and login in the catalog you want to sync.

The new catalog will now sync. All Adobe Cloud operations are done now in the upper right corner of the LR Classic window.

Thanks Eric!

 

The only option I see there is "Pause Syncing" - is that what you mean? I see no option to log out, either there or in the "Lightroom Sync" preference pane.

 

Cheers

Hi,

i have the same problem. What do I have to do to change my synced catalog? Step-by- step.

When I stop to sync my catalog and start sync the other one, it doesn't change anything... Do I have to delete my pictures in the cloud? And if: How?

I would be very happy, if somebody could help me...

best regards,

Mac
