Exported file looks different than in the editor

    I was going to suggest the same thing because I'm not seeing it in your files. Facebook says that an export size of 2048px gives the best result.

    At what point did you apply the Sun Flare? I'm not seeing that in your edited RAW file either.

    The steps I did here were: 1. Crop   2. NoNoise  AI  3. Sun Flare - and then I did four variations on the theme, settled on the 14-point flare and then moved its focal point.  That's it.  Didn't do a lot with it.  Interesting that the history disappeared though.  hmmmm  I did look at the history before and saw that it was all there.

    The History is always cleared when you leave the editor or move to a new photo while still in the editor. It only lasts as long as the current editing session for each photo.

    What has me confused is why it isn't in the .on1 sidecar file. That should have brought it along for me to see. The Sun Flare Effect should be there for me to examine under the Effects tab.

    Unless you have any more questions or info for me I'm going to chalk this up to Facebook's compression.

    I'll chalk it up to that as well  As you can see, I have it...

    Did you return to the Browser to save your edits in the .on1 file before zipping everything together for me? I can see that there are edits in it and I can see the edits done in the Develop panel along with an unused Local Adjustment but none of the Effects you've added.

    If you still had the photo open in the Editor that would explain why I'm not seeing them.

    No.  I did not.  And that is another thing I have now learned :)

    I see that the .on1 file is now 30Kb in size, and the one in the zip file is 19Kb.
