Here's one I can't get my head around.

I have a raw file of a married couple holding some flowers.
In lightroom I cropped the image down to isolate the flowers.
I then exported the Raw as an 'Original' in Lightroom, so to another Raw.

Open the new exported raw in photoshop, the crop is there as I expected.

I renamed the raw to 'test 1' and imported it back into lightroom and the uncropped image appears and I don't want it to.

I'm not sure of the behavior of the "Export as Original" because I've never used it and don't know that I'd ever want to.

If I were you and wanted a different version of an image with different processing, I'd use Virtual Copies (right click on the first image). That way you don't end up with another file, but still an image that you can edit in an entirely different way if you'd like, and when done they can each be exported to your different images. It seems like that export as original would end up a more headaches that I'd want:)!

Then don't import it back into LR?

To explain in more detail.

Currently I offer customers colour, black and white, a high contrast black and white and a vintage effect on their images.

WIth recent experimenting I've found that by applying these presets to the Raw files the end result looks much better than doing it to Jpeg versions.

I'm currently going thorugh a wedding of 2000 images cropping the images how I want them to look.

Now, usually I would export the finished images and export them as Jpegs.
Then I'd load the Jpegs into Lightroom and apply the preset then and export. Once the export was complete I'd reset one of the Jpegs and sync all of them and then apply the next preset.

I just want a failsafe in case I stuff up. A folder full of Raw files that are cropped ready for the next step in processing.

Well, try the Virtual Copy route: first Crop and do whatever common processing you want the two images to share, then you can right-click to Create a Virtual Copy. With this, you can apply the special presets and still have the crop and whatever you wanted to keep from the original, and your first copy will be the original processing. Try it out -- you won't have to deal with that Original Copy mixup:)!
