Hi everyone....I need some help. I have a huge library on classic that I like and am comfortable with. I am trying to be able to edit and export on another smaller more portable mac I use at other times.  What I did (and please tell me if I did somethinng wrong or another better way to do this)  was to create collections in my classic library at the bottom left with entire folders I have in my folder structure.  I then synces those collections to my cc.  I can see those collections as I guess they are called albums??? on my other mac that is only running LR CC.  I can edit on the portable mac in LR CC just fine but when I go to export on siad smaller kmore portable mac I get a message saying it could not be expoted as the size I reaquested.

 

Now, from what I have read I guess it is because I crested said collection on the LR Classic and synces to the CC, and when you do this it only sends smrt previews to the cloud.  Why and is there a different better way to do this?  Is there s a way to force full size files to the cloud.  If I have the online storage why would it not do this? I am aware I can export at a smaller size at 2560 pixels since that is what a smart preview is but that is not what I want to do. I want a higher res final product. I am also aware I can edit on smaller portable mac and then go export on original mac with Classic library but that seems redundant and silly to me. 

 

Please help
