Hello! I'm looking for some help. So I just recently started using Lightroom mobile on my iphone and ipad to edit some of my weddings. When editing on my macbook I like to make 2-3 duplicates of the photo so I can give them a reg colored, black and white and or whatever preset I'm using for that wedding. I can't seem to find a way to duplicate a photo on my lightroom mobile app. Any help would be much appreciated!!
I chatted with an adobe CC Subject Matter Expert earlier today. The duplicate feature is only availbe in the desktop/laptop version of Lr CC (I assume it is Classic).
But one thing I did notice.... a duplicate in Lr CC is not really a duplicate.... if you look at the file name of th photo... it is the same. I guess what lightroom does to better manage file sizes is creates indexes or something on the back end (that we don't see). When the file is exported it added a copy number to the file name, I did the exporting a number of different ways, I could not easily tell the algorithm for determining the how the copy number is calculated. I then tried to export a new copy of the original version, as well as one that was viewed as 'original version'... into the folder with existing files... it added new copy numbers to each one.
So, what I think I understand from this is that the duplicates and originals (editied versions or not) will export with a copy number ... but the copy number creation is a mystery.... it may even be the operating system (Windows 10) and not Lightroom that does it.
