Lightroom: Exporting developed image in original format

I'm working in LR3 with original jpeg images that are around 3 mb in size, but in order to export a developed image, I have to choose the jpeg file format, which reduces the file size to at best 750 kb. If I choose original file format, only the original and not the edited image is exported. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Jonathan,

To elaborate on Lee Jay's comment: In the export dialog, make sure that you've set the JPEG quality slider to 100. Make sure that the "Limit File Size To" checkbox is not checked. Make sure that the "Resize to Fit" checkbox is not checked.
