    Hi everyone, 
    Thank you for the suggestion - this is not something we are currently working on.

    This does not mean this is a bad suggestion or that it will never be adressed, but in an effort of transparency we want you to know that we are not currently allocating resources to solving this issue.

    We will revisit the status of this thread if and when it changes.

    Very good description!

    Did you "submit a request"?

    This feature was requested several times in the old forum.

    Great idea and very well thought out request.

    I have also been victim to accidental editing on a photo!  I know it's my fault completely, but I would like to minimize the chances of me being an idiot! LOL

    I just searched for the same idea.    I have accidently made changes to images/ variants.   A simple pad lock to restrict most alterations would be very helpful to start with.  More specified locks and pass coding individual images would be something useful too, in a more advanced version.   I'd request the ability to alter the print size/ process size unlocked from a general lock to allow easy distribution / delivery options without changing the artistic choices, if possible.

    +1. Locking variants would mean we could divert our attention to more important things than not accidentaly selecting the wrong image.

    I consider this to be a very valuable request. I taught myself this lesson recently! I assume this would be a good request for a software engineer new to the team to work on.

    This is a really needed feature.  I've resorted to creating an extra layer on my finished corrections and hand writing "LOCKED" in an overexposed brush stroke so it shows up in the thumbnails and reminds me to leave that variation alone.  It looks sloppy and unprofessional but that's better than accidentally screwing up a good image.

    I agree that it would be a welcome feature. Another possibility, as a workaround, would be to move finished images to a "Finished" folder.

    I would also welcome such a feature very much!

    One potential workaround would be a snapshot function like Lightroom's, which would allow you to save the final editing state, so that if you accidentally make further changes to an finished version of an image, you can revert to the snapshot of the final state. (See this request.)
