Sync devices without the cloud

I would love to have the ability to sync one or all images between my devices without having to involve the cloud.
We don’t always have high upload speed, in fact, hardly ever. Let me use my local network to sync my photos between devices.

Mylio already do this – I’d love to see something similar!
Lightroom mobile but much simpler and without the need of the cloud.

    I totally agree with this idea. For me it is not only about sync speed but also about the fact, that some pictures are rather private and I don’t want them to be on any cloud!

    Fast interent speed is not a given. If you are a travel photographer then it is almost a never unless travelling in certain countries.

    After reading the Google Drive and Dropbox EULA i will never use their services to sync my pictures.
    So we need ON1 users another alternative to sync our precious pictures between our devices.
    Adding to Photo Via the option to sync our pictures between ON1 and our devices using our home network would be great.

    Yes, with limited available bandwidth, using internal networking would be optimal between my laptops and desktop.

    This is what I am looking for too. There was an app called “Photosmith” that enabled this for Lightroom. But now it’s discontinued and it would be fantastic if on1 could pick this up to fulfil the needs for customers neither want or can put everything in the cloud.

    Haven’t thought trough fully… but one way of implementing this could be that the mobile client becomes a browser that browse photos on a network drive. I see this as an option to sync. Still a benefit to use a mobile client to browse and basic tasks like sorting on your full library (if located on a network drive)

    I currently trialling the use of the iPad pro with wifi hard drive for this reason.
    My wish is to keyword and review after shooting.
    The other reason cloud storage is a problem is file size, 30 -50 MB /image puts a bit of a strain on Bandwidth

    As On1 Photo Raw saves all edits in sidecar files you can already do this with a NAS drive of some sort.

    This is one that I would like to see for sure! I see no need for the cloud to have my photos!
