Video – Creating Versions (Virtual Copies)

I’d have to say that Virtual Copies are one of my favorite features in Lightroom. This is a feature that sneaks under most people’s radar, but I think they’re incredibly powerful. Think about it this way. How many times do you want to see your photo as say, a color photo – then maybe in black and white – then maybe even as a sepia-tinted photo? Imagine what a pain in the neck it would be to try and create the black and white, and then have to undo to get back to the color version all of the time. That’s where Virtual Copies come in. They basically let you create different versions of your photo without one harming or affecting the other. Check out this week’s video to learn more about them.
