Snapshots and Virtual Copies in Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom Classic

When you save a snapshot in the Develop module in Lightroom, that snapshot is automatically made available in every Virtual Copy of the image.

    Can a snapshot be converted into a virtual copy, say if I want to create a slideshow using the various snapshot choices to a client. Also so those snapsots can be seen in the library. Thanks

      If I understand what you’r asking, if your image already has the snapshot, simply make the virtual copy – the snapshot will be available.
