So I am trying to figure out a new way of importing all of my pictures, and sorting and tagging them. I used to only be working on one computer (a laptop when we were abroad, and my desktop when we got home). Now, my wife has taken over the desktop for her work purposes. Since she is the only income now, I can't really justify kicking her off to do tons of photo editing (since it is a hobby). All of the pictures are stored on a network drive, but the laptop is far slower than the desktop (Core2Duo vs i7 2600K). So this is what I am trying to do: When I go out and take pictures, I have been moving them into a folder called Unfiled. From there, I will rate/tag/cull/etc and move them into the appropriate folder for more in-depth editing. I have been using Lightroom to manage all of this. However, the external drive is connected to the desktop she is working on. I don't really want to be pinging back and forth across the network to manage all of these files. Will smart previews allow me to move files, and then re-sync the new locations? Do I need to duplicate the file structure, then file and move after sorting on the laptop (problem being keeping the file structure on the laptop)? Is there another photo editing program that will let me do what I want? Ideally, I would want to organize them, then either send/connect the updates to the files, and they would move. I can then do the more in-depth editing in the evening, when she doesn't need the computer. I don't really relish the idea of moving the physical external drive back and forth between computers.
