We have to export the Images out of the Lightroom after we are finished with the editing.
Check the below mentioned document for more information.
Thank You I did find a vid on adobe.com that got me through that one. But I still don't have a clue where all of the edited photos and folders go. They're not in my pictures.
All the edits that you have done on the images are saved in the catalog, the original files is kept intact.
While you are in export dialog box you will be given the option to choose the location where you want to save the exported images.
