    I'm trying to use OS X photos and need to move some photos from my main iCloud library, to my other library which is on an external drive, but they need to maintain the edits etc rather than just exporting the original file...

    Any ideas?

    You can Export as a PDF or TIFF with the edits incorporated in the output, but you can't export the edit data separately from the master image (to allow Revert to Original or modifying the edit).

    Photos and iPhoto do not support this. It's possible with Aperture by exporting as a New Library and importing Libraries.
