Is there a way to remotely access photos, and essentially make and save changes on a server somewhere, and be able to access this collection from multiple computers?
As long as you're saving information to metadata and using RAW files, the steps I've outline above would work. Unless you had a fast network, it might be a little slow, however.
I'm not sure how well keywording would work in that situation, though. I haven't really tried to synch up my keyword lists from machine to machine like I should. I have a set hierarchy on one machine, but not the other. I know I need to fix it, but I just haven't gotten around to trying yet.
If you were working with JPGs, PSDs, or TIFFs, I don't think it would work as well. I don't know how LR would treat differences in those files -- whether it would see them automatically, or require you to reimport the file into the library.
In short, it might work out okay, but there are probably some things that would be problematic. You'd just have to try it and see. I don't think LR was designed with that sort of operation in mind, so I'd tend to believe more problems would arise in time, but that's just speculation.
