  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

I am about to move from lightroom 6 and subscribe to Lightroom Classic CC. Would like to be able to work across both laptop and desktop on same photos. I understand that photos are on my external storage device and that only changes to my photos are keep on the computer. How do I keep the changes up to date on both computers? If I work on the laptop then next session work on then desktop how do I get the recent laptop work to my desktop. Robert

The easiest way to do this is to store the Lightroom catalog on the external disk too, so you can use the same catalog on both computers.
IF practical and affordable, IF, use a small external SSD for the catalog and previews, and a much larger HDD for images.,
