I'm using LR 5.7.x in Win7 environment.
I have an existing collection within a collection set. I'd like to add a virtual copy of an image to that collection. Is there a way to do this in one step?
If I select the image and press B, it puts a copy - not a virtual copy - into the target. The only way I see of doing this is to make the virtual copy first, copy it to the target collection and finally delete the virtual copy from the original location.
In order to add a virtual copy to a collection, you need to create a virtual copy. Once it is created, set the collection(to which you want to import the images or virtual copies to) as Target collection.
Once this is done, you need to select the image or the virtual copy and press B to Add to Target collection.
Note : Add to collection doesn't create any copy of image file.
Also, if you delete the virtual copy from the catalog, it will be removed from the collection as well.
Let me know if this helps.
Thank you Mrinmay.
I was adding an unnecessary step before.
I am glad that I was able to help.
Let me know if you have any further queries.
