The ability to work with multiple catalogs is one of Lightroom's many great features, no doubt! There are numerous scenarios where you would need to transfer photos, their metadata and develop settings from one catalog to another: data backup, performance considerations, workflow, travel, teamwork, etc. While the transfer can be done quite easily using the Export as Catalog and Import from Catalog functions, there is no easy way to sync up the contents of published collections. Not without a little help from the Lightroom Voyager anyway!
