I was wondering if I could open the LR catalogue on my imac and thus edit photos while I am downstairs - assuming I could connect wirelessly of course.

If I can do it will it be appreciably slower?

I usually work upstairs editing but feel cut off from the rest of what is going on!

Not slower to process, but slower to refresh. The easiest way I can think of to try it out for free with little or no hassle is to try a 60 day trial of MobileMe and use Back To My Mac.

Ah - good idea, already have mobile me.

I would edit and then backup catalogue at end of session

I run LR2 on a Win7 desktop, but I often use Microsoft's RemoteDesktop client on my MacBook Pro to remotely run LR from the Mac. Editing is pretty slow (not to mention the small screen), but it works great for culling through shots. I often do this sitting on our couch while I watch something stupid on our 52" TV :)

So the speed would depend on the speed of your wireless LAN, as well as how well Mac implements its remote-access software. You can also look into VNC, but I find VNC is quite slow so I prefer RDP.
