This option creates a new variant of the source image with the default settings applied. You can use this option when you want to create a copy before applying any adjustments. It is also useful when you have made a series of adjustments without keeping a copy of the original variant. Creating a new variant lets you keep the adjusted variant and allows you to start over on working with copy of the original image.
- Select the image that you want to create a copy of with the default settings applied (this can be an image with adjustments already applied).
- In the main menu, select Image -> New Variant or press F2/F7 (macOS/Windows). Alternatively, right-click on the image and select New Variant.
- A single copy of the image without any adjustments is created (i.e. a new variant with the default settings is created).
- The new variant is added automatically to a variant group and numbered with a position (displayed in the browser).
