Storing edited files on Dropbox involves network and we do not recommend storing Lightroom files on network.
What happens when you store the exports on your local hard drive?
After exporting edited photos to a folder, I've uploaded to Dropbox. The edits are non-existent in Dropbox! What gives?
Which files did you upload to Dropbox? The exported files? The original files? The catalog?
I exported the edited files. Is it because they were RAW and I saved in the original format within Lightroom?

Would you please first export images to a folder in your computer and then upload them to Dropbox and check whether you have the edits retained or not.
Do you use a Dropbox plugin in Lightroom? If not please share your workflow with us.
I did export the images to a folder in my computer then uploaded from that folder to Dropbox. However, in looking at that folder through Finder on my computer, the edits are not shown. I only see the edits when I am in Lightroom. Why is this? Help!
The edits are not shown because you exported as "original". Export as Tiff or Jpg.
Is Tiff a higher quality than Jpg?
And what about image sizing? What should the resolution be so it can be as high quality as possible? Thank you!
You can set TIFF to have no compression. JPEG, even at 100 quality has compression and will recompress every time you resave it. The choice really depends on what you are going to do with the files.
The RESOLUTION setting is meaningless. Its pixel dimensions that count. If you want as high quality as possible then just uncheck "Resize to Fit" and the pixel dimensions will be the same size as the RAW.

If you choose Original, Lightroom exports the image data in the same format that the original was captured in, and no File Settings options are available. When exporting original raw files, metadata changes are exported in an accompanying sidecar file.
Tiff will give you absolute best quality though jpeg will also give you a good quality.
It depends upon where you are going t o use the image.
