Lightroom, Dropbox, multiple computers, and presets
Dec 29, 2012

I'm storing my photos and Ligthroom catalog in Dropbox.  I only have about 5000 photos and I shoot jpegs.  I've got 100 GB Dropbox account, so I've got plenty of room.

This allows me to access my photos from both my home computer and laptop computer and even my iPad.  It also serves as a way to back everything up since the files are located on 2 different computers and in the cloud.

So far it seems to be working just fine even though my Dropbox folder is in different locations on the 2 computers.  However, I'm not sure how to handle presets.  Is there a way to change where Lightroom stores presets?  There is an option to store the presets with the catalog.  However, if you switch catalogs you no longer have access to the presets and I want to be able to use my presets on both computers.
