Using Virtual Copies

If you haven’t already, you should take a look at using the Virtual Copy function in Lightroom.

This function allows you to create different version on your photos, but without taking up valuable disk space.

The examples here are 3 images I created for an Instagram post and only physically existed when I exported them. Inside lightroom they are just 3 virtual copies of 1 image. In this instance, just changing how they are processed, but they could be different crops or colours or any other edit you’d like to try a version of.

Virtual copies are very handy for creating different version of your photos without losing what you have already created.
