BW Virtual Copies revert to Color when exported and then the BW adjustment disappears when i reopen LR.
Has not happened before and i am doing a lot of BW Virtual Copies using the V shortcut, so its incredibly tedious to can back and redo each one.
Any ideas why this might be happening?
I cannot replicate your problem on my computer. I just now created a virtual copy, press the letter V to convert it to black and white and then exported it. Then I closed Lightroom, reopened, and the virtual copy it was still B & W. Or, did I misunderstand? Windows 7 Home Premium, Lightroom 5.
Thanks for your help and reply.
Yes that is the way i did it, though i am on a Mac.
I had 6000+ images in the catalog from a shoot with about 80 BW final choices.
All the metadata was saved as individual Sidecars.
I exported all the Choices, 1000+, together, Color and BW Virtual Copies
So wondering if the quantity might have made LR act up.
Let me know what you think.
