Duplicating a group and making changes is altering the original group.

this is a really urgent matter i am working on for a job.

i have a group of 168 images ( all the same) all laid out in a specific way, i want to duplicate the group and then replace the image by right clicking and choosing relink file, to images of the exact same size, this works perfectly, however this is then changing the original group to now have the new image. i need to do this to have multiple options to switch between for this job.

I cant find a way to duplicate the group, replace the images, without altering the original.

i have to do this for over 500 images, so doing it one by one is simply not an option.

i am not sure if this affects this but i don't want to make the layers into smart objects because i need to go into premiere or after effects afterwards and turn each image on and off, so i need to keep each individual layer separate.

any help would be highly appreciated.
