I've got a Mac Pro which has historically been my only editing machine. I now have a second editor so I need to be able to edit the pics on a second mac too, a Mac mini.
I know you cannot work on the same catalog at the same time, so I backed up my catalog on the Mac Pro and moved the backup to the Mac Mini. I also shared the Mac Pro's HDD on a gigibit ethernet network so that the RAW files are accessible by the Mac Mini. (So catalog is local on the Mac mini, RAWs are mounted through the network). I relinked the file location in the catalog without any issues.
This all worked 100% except for one thing:
The colour tones are off! Not hugely off, but it is noticeable. The black and white photos are most noticeable. The blacks look less contrasty and soft. My wife, who edits, immediately noticed the issue, which has resulted in this solution not working for us.
I thought that it could be one of two things: 1. Screen calibration. I figured it just "looked" different, but actually was the same underneath. To test this, I exported the same photo from both computers at the same settings and compared the Jpegs on the Mac Pro. It was clear, the colours were different. Screen calibration was not the issue
- Editing Presets not being present: Since all our presets were on the Mac Pro, I duplicated them onto the Mac mini. This still did not fix the issue.
I'm out of ideas on what it could be? Any help would be appreciated?
