I have a macbook pro, dual booted with Windows 7.
Originally, I used LR in the Windows install, and then I switched to OSx. As a result I have two catalogues of photo PPs.
This doesn't bother me, but now I find myself needing to use windows 7 again, due to the lack of a osx driver for my usb internet dongle. I don't mind switching over for future photos, but I have a couple of months worth of pics that I am only partway though PPing.
I realise there are a couple of more tedious ways around this (I want to upload my collections to and facebook via LR), but as there are so many (3 separate holidays worth) I want to get it working through LR rather than exporting to jpegs and then manually uploading from there.
How can I merge my two catalogues, and for that matter is it possible to have some kind of syncing process to maintain one catalogue across multiple computers? Would the answer be to save the catalogue to a portable disk of some description, or is there a better way?
As I said, I realise there are workarounds, but I'm really trying to find the most efficient way for both now AND in the future, as this kind of thing will probably happen quite a lot.
