Adobe Lightroom was first introduced way back in 2007 and since then has grabbed the attention of thousands of photographers around the world as it is a far simpler yet powerful version of Adobe Photoshop aimed at making the editing workflow that much more convenient, accurate and time-effective.

However, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC does have its limitations. You cannot use layers for example, yet don't panic as everything you do to an image within Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC is completely non-destructive and does not affect the original file at all.

However, one issue many people who use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC ask is whether or not it is possible to create many versions of edits on the same image as it appears not possible. However, there most definitely is a way and that is to use what they call Virtual Copies of an image.

So if you wanted to create a Virtual Copy you would right-click on the image you wish to make a duplicate of and select: Create Virtual Copy.
