I mainly use Lightroom for iPad and would like a feature to duplicate images so I can provide clients with a B&W and a colour version. 

 

Many thanks

Do you actually need to create physical duplicates, or would Versions work for you (if you could easily export all versions)?

Would the versions all export with the rest of the album and stay in order (if that even makes sense)?

If you have multiple edits saved as unique Versions of a photo, I believe currently you would need to explicitly apply and export each version you'd want to preserve outside of Lightroom.

 

Lightroom Desktop can duplicate photos and would be able to export multiple variations of your image in a batch process as I think you may wish to do.  However, if you subscribed to Lightroom Mobile on an iOS or Android device, this does not include Lightroom Desktop.  If you need the desktop app, various plans are described here and these desktop plans also include LR Mobile: https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom/compare-plans.html

Yep, as Charlie said, export all versions is limited to desktop at the moment, but would be a good feature request for mobile.
