If you are using lightroom on more than one computer, say a laptop and a desktop, or perhaps you have an assistant to does some of your post processing work, or you have outsourced your post processing to Shoot Dot Edit, you will find that knowing how to share, transfer and sync Lightroom Catalogs as well as image XMP data will be invaluable. Most often, I am using this feature to take a little work with me on my laptop as I am traveling to teach a workshop. But many of you will also find this lesson useful in outsourcing your work to someone like Shoot Dot Edit.
