Im using Adobe Lightroom 5.7.1 (but plan to upgrade to Lightroom 6) I have about 50 photographs that Im trying to sell, I need to crop the images to different aspect ratios for displaying on website and for sending to printers a greeting cards. I realize I can resize as part of export but that stretches/shrinks image and I want to crop so the image is not distorted so I create virtual copies of each image and then copy the copies to new colections, I have a 3:4 collection, square collection and 1:1.414 (A6) collection.
My problem is that given 50 images in starting folder if I make virtual copies of all, i then have to drag them one by one to the 3:4 collection. Then make another set of virtual copies and copy them to square collection and so on. Im finding it very error prone and think that either I shoudn't be using virtual copies in the first place or if I should there must be an easier way to do this ?
