Question: I exported a smart preview catalog to my desktop and then copied it to Dropbox. My friend tried to download it and the catalog will show up, but it will not show any of the images. Also, the LR icon on his side is blank? We are both up to date on our LR product. I am on a MAC, he is on a PC. What am I missing? Why won't the smart preview catalog show the images? Thank you!

Did you put the Smart Preview Folder in your Dropbox as well?

The Folder: yourcatalogname Smart Previews.LRDATA must accompany the catalog as it contains the Smart Previews upon which the catalog will act.
