I want to clarify my question.  There is no Export option in any of my dropdown menus.  The only thing remotely like Export is Share To.  This does not export my Lightroom edits, just the original photograph.

Which Lightroom CC are you talking about? The mobile version or the desktop version? On the desktop version you must choose 'File - Save to' and then choose JPEG. On the mobile iOS version there are different options, such as 'Share', 'Save to Camera Roll', 'Save to Files'. All should create a new version with the Lightroom edits applied. I don't have the Android version but that will be similar.

Thank you.  Just after posting my question, I figured this out.  I assume that the way to save the photo in a form other than JPEG is to edit the photo in Photoshop and Save As...
