I want to export my photo out of lightroom as a png (what it was imported as) to preserve the transparent background. Is the only way to do this using the original + settings option?

 

If so.. when I do it it does export as a png but none of my edits export. It is just the orginal file. Hoping there is something im doing wrong or a way to fix?

What happens if you export as original + settings is that the Lightroom settings will get added to the xmp metadata section of the file. Only Adobe software can read and interpret those settings so for all other software it will look like the original since they don't know how to aply the edits. If you want a png with the transparency intact and the settings applied, you cannot do this in Lightroom Cloudy since it does not support png export. You need Lightroom Classic or Photoshop.
