Adobe Lightroom cloud support

Project description

This project extend Adobe Lightroom with cloud support making it possible to access a catalog from different machines safely without corrupting the catalog.

  • Have a catalog file in a shared location, such as a folder in Google Drive, Dropbox, or a NAS, and have lrcloud synchronize the catalog between a local and the shared location.
  • Only synchronizing the changes not the whole catalog
  • Support Smart Previews
  • On-the-fly catalog compression
Current limitations:
  • The paths in the shared catalog are not converted thus a catalog cannot be shared between Window and OSX.
  • No GUI
  • No simultaneous catalog access



Please note that lrcloud is still in beta so backup your catalog frequently :)
