Usually the question is some form of, “Since it is not possible to open a Lightroom Classic catalog over a network connection, how can I use Lightroom Classic to access...

The “Resetting The Sliders” Trick You Probably Don’t Know

The Difference Between Snapshots and Virtual Copies in Lightroom Classic

Here’s the quick answer to that question: I use Snapshots when I’m working on an image and I kinda like where it looks at this point, but I want to keep tinkering and experimenting a bit with it, but if I don’t like how things are going I want an easy way to get back to the point where I did like how it looked.
