    There may not be a dedicated function, but there may be a workaround like creating a new album (empty), opening the source album, selecting all images and put them in the new album.

    Copying photos from one album to another does not preserve the original order of the photos. That's a real problem if you have hundreds of photos in an album.

    > M H: ...does not preserve the original order

    Album sort order has been discussed several times over the years. You should be able to search for and find relevant threads. I think one or more threads circled around renaming the images in sort order by prefixing a sequence number.

    I never needed to clone an album. Let's hope a user who already solved it, chimes in to help.

    My hunch would be to change things around in C1 while watching the SQLite database for changes, all that to learn how to manipulate the database myself to make C1 do what I want. I realize that may not be for everyone to do. Your best bet may be to file a feature request and hope for a "duplicate album" function to appear in the future.

    Thanks for that! This does in fact seem to work, thought it's a bit cumbersome. I hope the developers of Capture One will implement a proper "Duplicate" command soon, but at least this is a usable workaround.
