I understand that in order to make different edits of a photo (ie crop the left for one, crop & edit the right side for a second print) a virtual copy must be made.
If that is true, where is the second copy (and its sidecar) saved? Thank you
A virtual copy is a second copy of all the metadata, and is stored in the catalog. There is no physical image file for a virtual copy. However, you can open that virtual copy into Photoshop or Photoshop Elements or some other external editor and the results of that editing will create a copy of the image.
Thank you Jim.
