Copy link to clipboard
I share this idea, through a post I found when I was looking for the same solution.
"It would be nice it was possible to create a virtual copy when dragging a photo to an existing collection.
What I would like to do: I have a collection "A" with photo X, I drag X to collection "B" and I want to hava VC of X in collection B.
What I currently do: in collection "A" I select X, make a VC, drag the VC to B, delete the VC from A.
So it would be an "addition" to the option that let us add virtual copies when creating a new collection. In my imagination this would happen when I drag and drop a photo and hold some modifier key."
It would be very useful for me to be able to add a virtual copy of photo A to existing collections.So I could have a collection for each type of crop format more quickly.
I could see this being useful, like holding down the Opt key to copy a file to a folder using the OS rather than moving it.
I would also like this as I often want to add an image to a collection as a virtual copy. Currently, I have to add the image, create a VC, and remove the original image. As an example, I have a collection for my Mac wallpapers with VC's that have been cropped and have some more sharpening etc. Example 2 is a collection of images that are going to be edited later in Photoshop where I have removed some of the Lightroom Develop settings, but I still want to have the fully developed original that has been published etc. Example 3 is a client collection that contains various Print versions of cropped images of different aspect ratios.
