Virtual copies in Lightroom for optimal editing flexibility

Virtual copies in Lightroom are duplicates of images that can be independently edited. These virtual copies can be cropped, colour corrected, converted to black and white and even exported. This functionality allows for the simple creation and comparison of multiple versions of a single image. Virtual copies only exist within Lightroom and do not take up any disk space.
