I am trying to set up the ability of my Windows machine to run Lightroom and access the photos that I have stored on my iMac.
I have the main lightroom catalog on the iMac, not shared, and I'm saving metadata information to sidecar files.
I have shared the main folder of my user on the iMac to the network, and I am able to connect to it from my Windows machine and both read, write, and delete files just fine through Windows explorer.
- I am not sharing the catalog in any way
- I want to share only the photo files (.CR2, .XMP, .JPG)
My photos are stored under ~/Pictures on the iMac.
I then fire up Lightroom on my Windows machine, and add a folder to
\\imac\lassevk\Pictures, this seems fine.
But, 0 photos. Right-click and select Synchronize gives me this dialog:
Is what I'm trying to do impossible?
If it matters:
- OS X Mavericks
- Windows 8.1 64-bit
- Lightroom 5.3 64-bit
