Making a duplicate or clone of a variant simply copies the selected image variant to make another one. It is useful specifically when you have made a number of adjustments but want to keep that variant and try some incremental changes at the same time. If an original image variant is cloned, then the result is the same as of the New Variant command. There is practically no limit to the number of copies that can be made.
- Select the image variant you want to copy (typically this will be an image with adjustments applied).
- In the menu, select Image -> Clone Variant (or press F3/F8 (Mac/Windows)). Alternatively, right-click on the image and select Clone Variant.
- A single copy of the selected image is made.
- The copy is added automatically to a variant group and numbered with a position (displayed in the browser).
