How do I know, that a picture has one or more versions other than I have to open the picture and check.
Not sure if I understand correctly, could you please elaborate and provide some more details about the issue?
Are you seeing duplicates of the image you're working on? When does it happen? While importing or viewing images?
Also, which version of Lightroom and the operating system you're working with? In Lightroom, you can check that by going to Help > System Info.
I am using the most recent version 3.4. When I use the "G" key to present an overview of pictures in an album I am looking for an indicator on a picture, which tells me, that there are versions behind the original; like you see the virtual copies in Lightroom classic. Instead I have to open an image with the "E" key and the check whether there are versions available.
There's nothing like that in Lightroom.
It sounds like you are describing the "Stacks" feature, where (in Lightroom Classic) you can stack multiple images together, and expand or collapse the stack. As Jim Wilde says, there is nothing like that in Lightroom.
No Michael, they're not talking about Stacks (and there is a Stacks feature in Lightroom, with a thumbnail indicator). They want to use the (relatively) new Versions feature in Lightroom which works similarly to the Snapshots feature in LrClassic, and then to be able to identify "at a glance" those images which have had versions created. Ideally by a badge on the grid thumbnails, like the Virtual Copy indicator in Classic. But sadly that indicator isn't available yet.
Ah, right you are, Jim. I need to pay more attention to the new features as they arrive 🙂 Thanks for setting me straight.
yes. That was my point and my question. I really would like to see that feature in one of the next releases.
