Dropbox would indeed work since it keeps copies of the files locally but a network drive would not work for me since I work on my photos while travelling often without an internet connection. I worry a bit about Dropbox since sometimes I seem to end up in a very bandwidth consuming continuous syncing when working on something interactively from there.
