Lightroom Classic: Snapshots on steroids

Imagine with me a Lr where you can one-click/hot-key a snapshot of your wip, then go back to a previous snapshot using a hierarchical timeline (e.g. tree structure), then branch off into a separate line of edits/snapshots. Additionally, you alt-click and get an option to name the snapshot (similar to the current implementation of Snapshots).Did I lose you? Two main suggestions here: (1) Create hierarchical view of Snapshots, and (2) quick action to add (nameless) Snapshots.Reasoning is that every existing user is already using these features, but the features are scattered across: Snapshots, History, and Virtual Copy. Proof is to see feature requests in 1 of those 3 features and you’ll see users asking for features from the other two. I’m suggesting a nice merger to improve workflows.The challenge is to prevent runaway/unmanageable Snapshot hierarchies, but I’m sure you can prevent that in your design :)Thanks.

Hi Omar,

Thanks for the suggestion.
We'll discuss about it.
