Is it possible to save different versions of edits to a raw file without having to duplicate the actual file e.g. I carry out some edits on a raw file then I want to make a b&w version of the same file without losing the first set of edits? This may be a standard feature but I'm quite new to Lightroom, I've done a google search and a forum search and can't find an answer.

Create a virtual copy, edit it any way you want.

Being an 'oldie' I remember the use of ["] in a word document to indicate "Ditto" - meaning 'copy the line above'.

Maybe by design the Lightroom-Classic shortcut key is [Ctrl+'] -the key with the ["].

Select one photo in Grid (or Loupe) view and you can repeat the [Ctrl+'] shortcut to create as many Virtual Copies as you want-  Color, Contrasty, B&W, Posterised, etc, and still only have one original file on the hard-drive.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 10.0, Photoshop 22.0, Lightroom 4.0, Windows-10. Nikon DSLR.
