DPP - Creating a duplicate copy of an image

lwatawala

Is there a way to make a duplicate copy of an image in DPP so that I can apply independent recipes to the two versions.

 

This would be a feature that would allow functionality similar to “Create Virtual Copy” in Lightroom Classic. In DPP it would mean creating a physical copy of the image (and any associated existing recipe) on disk.

2 ACCEPTED SOLUTIONS

You can always save the file under a new name and then edit it however you want to. Since all modifications in DPP are non-destructive, you can always revert either copy to the original state.

 

But you can also save a "recipe" file that contains only the modifications to the original file. This allows you to save only one original copy, since you can apply any recipe file to it.
