When you create virtual copies & snapshots in Lightroom does it automatically create that file on a hard disk or is it only held within the light room software? If so do you therefore have to export the file to hard disk if you want a physical copy on your had drive?
There is no physical copy on the hard drive. Information is stored as metadata. You would export to get a physical copy.
Cheers thats what I thought. Just wanted confirmation. Thanks for the help.
