Images Could not be Exported at The Size You Requested

Greetings!

I am new to using Adobe Lightroom (Cloud-based). I am using Lightroom Classic to orgnize my photos and add collections. I sync collections with Lightroom (Cloud-based) to edit them on my devices. However, when I am trying to export my edited photos on Lightroom (Cloud-based), I am getting the following message, "Some images could not be exported at the size you requested because we couldn't access the full size original".

 

I have researched regarding some solutions, and what I have understood is that Lightroom Classic only "smart-view" images are synced with Lightroom (Cloud-based). The size of the image after exporting is highly reduced to KBs. 

 

I would appreciate any inputs or potential solutions on this matter. 

 

I am using Lightroom on PC running Windows 11, and I have updated both of Lightrooms to the latest versoins.

 

Regards,

The only solution is to export from Lightroom Classic. An image that is synced from Lightroom Classic to the cloud is indeed a smart preview, so that is all that Lightroom desktop has and can export.

Thank you very much, Johan. Are edits on Lightroom reflected on Lightroom Classic?

Yes, they are if the Lightroom Classic catalog is still synced.
