For better editing and comparison I think a "create a virtual copy" option would be very nice.

Snapshots was implemented in the form of the new Versions Feature found in the 2020 release.  Please see  https://theblog.adobe.com/june-photography-releases/ for details!

At this time a Virtual Copy analog remains unplanned.

Would be great to have a 'create virtual copy' capability on Lightroom Mobile, replicating the same functionality on the desktop. I quite often want to duplicate a photo while on the road so I can create multiple edits. This is not currently possible due to the lack of this function. Thanks for considering.

Agreed. Would be a great addition to the mobile version. I find that I really like working up my alternate color/b&w treatments on LR mobile and the lack of the virtual copy feature kind of holds me back in this way.

Yep, needed this today, to work in conjunction with mobile premiere to make a "Ken Burns" effect that goes beyond the simple zoom provided be premiere. Wanted 3 VCs, but am on vacation so no desktop to create them...

Ipad for Lightroom.

A great ver 1.

Please consider virtual or snapshots or history states, so I can create multiple versions / crops / treatments for the same image.

I know this is very early, but I could do the major work on the ipad in terms of selects ( hopefully ratings as well) apply crops etc. and later do the fine tuning of colour / texture related settings back on my main machine with colour calibrated hardware and more finesse. The selection and rough cuts can be done on the ipad.

[ideally, I would also like to be able to edit Title , Caption and Location metadata at the same time, but have put that in a different Idea posting.

I wonder if the reason virtual copies cannot be done on mobile goes back to the way mobile edits all appear as one history state for all the mobile edits executed in one session? Perhaps breaking out a new virtual copy doesn't work with the current way changes are synced?

If so, Adobe may have to upgrade the sync engine before adding virtual copies?

Yes essential for making different grades , and giving clients options of say normal colour , pushed colour look and then B&W
(or just for myself to play around with and make a ‘portfolio’ version )

Please implement soon

I am doing almost all of my photo processing in Lightroom Mobile, quite often not using the desktop version at all. I am frustrated that I cannot duplicate an image in LR mobile so I can make both black and white and color versions of the same file. Copying to other collections does not work and for the life of me I cannot find any duplicate or virtual copy functionality in LR mobile. We need a way to non-destructively 'explore' where we want to take an image, and sometimes depending on where we share our work, both B&W versions of the same file are needed. Can we add the virtual copy functionality to LR mobile or at lease a 'duplicate' function or perhaps 'isolated collections'. It's seriously limiting not to be able to do both color and black and white versions.

Thanks!

Yes, it’s essential in a program that’s mobile. I use on the way a lot and I can’t do more than one color effect on the same photo.
Please include this feature.
Thanks.
