    Hi Gael,

    This is a completely understandable request. Although, you cannot "sync" your photo book project from one computer to another, you can, however, continue to work on that project on the new Mac Pro by copying your entire Photo Library to that computer. This can be done by simply copying the library to a hard drive or by using migration assistant to transfer your data, just to name a couple.

    There are a some things to keep in mind:
    1. Your projects, like books, calendars, cards, etc... are specific to the photo library they are stored in and cannot be exported or synced. This means that if you do copy your entire library to the Mac Pro and start working on it there, it will not update on the MacBook Air automatically.
    2. The best thing to do would be to store the library on a portable hard drive. This way you can open that library from both computers (As long as that drive is connected at the time), and it updates and saves all edits you make, no matter what computer you use.

    Hope this helps.
