Thread: Where is the edited files on Lightroom?

    Default Where is the edited files on Lightroom?

    Hey guys,

    Is there a way to open an edited file outside of Lightroom?

    For example, after editing the photos on Lightroom, you want to backup the edited files on a memory card, but I can't find the edited files. Each time i right-click to 'Show in Finder', it brings me to the original file.
    I was expecting to find an edited file.

    Hope you guys can help.

    Thanks!

    Lightroom is a non-destructive processing environment. The changes are not applied to the originals, until you "export" them. If you have "saved" the changes, the changes will be kept in a sidecard file (if you are not using DNG format).

    So, all you have to do is to export to see the edited image.

    Lightroom does not store any files, it just stores the edits that you made.
    You'll have to export the image to the format of your choice
