Lightroom Ecosystem: Ability to Create Snapshots

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.

This is not the same feature as a “virtual copy”... The different “Versions” don’t get exported!

This is yet another super-super simple feature that doesn’t (for some weird reason only Adobe knows) get added to LR-mobile... Why?

I find myself doing all kinds of backflips and workaround to use LR-mobile. So frustrating for such an expensive subscription...

Agreed!! We need virtual copies to be able to export all at once.

I'm also in agreement with the above, being able to see each version as a "separate" file has its advantages...be it so you don't have to keep overwriting previous versions if you're only making a small change, or if you need to export a bunch of versions quickly. At least for now, however, swapping between versions and exporting doesn't take *that* long. 

One of my big issues (that I haven't seen discussed yet) is that only the latest "version" syncs with Lightroom Classic. I could be wrong, but as far as I can tell, you can't access other versions within the program. As a mostly-pc user (who genuinely hates the mobile-inspired Lightroom CC), not being able to have multiple versions on my phone show up on my computer is...annoying.

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.

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...

Three years later... Still a future feature. Such a valued feature on desktop, so easy to implement. I could sub for Premium version just for this. Come on developers! Make it happen...

Agreed!! With more of moving to iPad for editing, we expect to LrM to be up to standard.

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.

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?
