It would be nice to be able to select Raw pictures (such as .cr2, .cr3, etc) and convert them directly on the cloud to jpeg (or other). This enables photographers to save space, discard bad versions without fully deleting them and speeds up the process. Right now this is possible by exporting them to JPEG and importing them again but this process is really not convenient.

I know you can do it by exporting/ reimporting but what if we could have s way to do this from the library, there are  always some point&shoot or old photos that you can live without their raw files. It would be awesome to save space in the cloud to be able to select your raws from the library and simply convert them to jpegs with their current edits collapsed.

I'm not sure how you would expect Lightroom to do that. Lightroom is a parametric (i.e. nondestructive) image editor. In other words, no changes are ever actually applied to the master image. Changes are saved to the catalog which is not really accessible to the user in the cloud version. The raw images contain much more data, making them much more flexible for editing. I would never want to exchange raw images for JPEG images anyway, personally.

 

If you are saving local copies of your images you could export JPEG copies and add them to your online library and then delete the raw images. But hopefully you won't be wanting to do any more adjustments to those JPEG images.
