Hi Everyone,

I recently discovered syncing collections across LR on different devices. I have been working on a collection on my desktop and making an adjustment, but when I got to my MBP that the collection is sync too the adjustments are not present. 

How can I fix this?

Sounds like you are trying to sync collections in two Lightroom Classic catalogs. That is not possible. You can only sync one Lightroom Classic catalog, so if you want to see the results on your laptop, you will have to use Lightroom (cloud) on that laptop, not Lightroom Classic.

Are you using Lightroom Classic, or Lightroom? Do you know the difference between them? If you use Lightroom, your images are stored in the cloud and everything will sync between computers. If you use Classic, the images are stored on a local drive. You can sync Classic collections with smart previews, but you can't sync between two computers running Classic. 

You posted your question in the Lightroom forum, but you are talking about Collections. Only Classic has Collections. Lightroom has Albums.

What application are you using, and what exactly are you trying to accomplish?

I am using lightroom classic on both. And I sort of understand the difference between the two. 

So if I want to be able to use the same edit catalog on both computers, should I be using an external and storing my catalog on that?

Yes, you can uninstal Classic on the laptop and instal Lightroom. Make sure that you understand how they sync system works first. Don't import photos into Lightroom on the laptop. Put photos in Collections in Classic and sync the collection. They you can access them to edit on the laptop. Any edits you make on the laptop will sync back to the desktop.

Classic uploads smart previews which are much smaller. The originals stay on the hard drive.

You could put your Classic catalog on an external drive, and all of your photos. This would allow you to move the catalog back and forth between computers. However, it is not an ideal workflow.

I recommend syncing selected collections of images from your main Classic catalog, then using Lightroom on the secondary computer for editing only.

So I should uninstall the my classic on my laptop and download lightroom CC - the cloud version?

When I make changes on either or will take the changes?

That can work - effectively you are using Lightroom CC (the program Adobe call Lightroom and others call Lightroom Cloudy) as if it it Lightroom Mobile on your laptop.
