When I edit pictures in develop mode, sometimes I do it in stages as time allows until complete.
I do two things:
a) Create a virtual copy on occasion as a back-up.
b) But much more often I right click on the edit in progress ( because I want to save my editing for latter) and when the metadata pop-up option box comes up I choose the "save metadata to file option" before moving on.
Now for some unexplained reason, that option and the others are grayed out.
How do I get back to what I really count on to safeguard work in progress?
Thanks for any help offered.
Perplexed as this is a brand new roadblock.
I have version 5.7.1. Thanks!
Make sure you're right-clicking the original (master) and not the virtual copy. When you right-click a virtual copy, Metadata > Save Metadata To File will be greyed out.
