When downloading DNGs from the web, you are downloading original images and these will not have your edits applied. If you want to save versions with your edits applied, you must save the "Latest version" as a JPG to see your edits applied.
Yes I noticed that I don't get the RAW with my edits, that's why I created this topic. I
don't care about the JPG.
I use Lightroom Classic because it has more features, installing another software seems overly complicated.
I think the best solution would be to just allow the download of the edited file from Lightroom Web. Or if it has to be another software just allow the Downloader to select images and not just download everything.
If you use Lightroom CC on the desktop, your images are synced with the desktop. The image will initially be just a Smart Preview, but you can request the original from the cloud. Then you’ll have the DNG in Lightroom CC on your desktop with the synced develop settings. Best of all worlds. From there, you could edit in Photoshop, export full resolution images as described above, etc.
Ok, but what's the use of an online Lightroom version if you can't download the changes you made through a mobile device via the .xmp sidecar file that you can download using the "Adobe Lightroom Downloader", in case you didn't do any changes on the desktop. It's pretty useless that way as people want to keep their RAW files but also their Edits without having to resolve to JPG downloads having these changes applied.
The whole system seems to be set up so that you just keep paying for your CC account, and that's not ok.
