Watch Advanced Adobe Lightroom Catalog Management on YouTube
Adobe Lightroom is the ultimate in Digital Asset Management and RAW conversions. It is such an advanced application you can easily get lost or stuff a bit messed up. Today's question is about how to combine catalogs, use them in a master/slave config when working on multiple computers with the same photos, and moving photos from one drive to another in the same catalog. Any questions? Comment below and keep shooting!Eyes by Cazillo, on Flickr
Greg saw your video awhile ago on working with lr catalogs and backups. To say the least I'm still confused as hell. I have catalogs on my desktop somewhere, catalogs on my external drive. I'm lost :-( was wondering if you could make an updated youtube vid or maybe blog post on how to deal with this issue.
Also with pictures catalogs now speard across 2 diff drives is there a way to pull everything together? For the most part the actuall pics live in my lightroom picture folder on my external drive. Should I make a new catalog one or twice a year. I'm not a super heavy shooter. ie no weddings some events, mostly fashion type stuff. What's the best way to avoid having catalogs all over the place?
If you can thanks a million Greg
