downloads from SmugMug

I may b doing something wrong, but I find that if I edit data on a photo in SmugMug, like adding keywords, I do not get that info when downloading that photo from SmuMug to my desktop. Am I doing something wrong (besides possibly viewing SmugMug as more than a Photo Display and Sales Site?

On a similar track, I have many photos in my SmugMug Source Folder (Years...By year taken.) I then distribute those photos to a multitude of albums via Smart Album Keyword identification.

If edits made in SmugMug were included in SmugMug's download offering, Is there a way one could download photos, that haven't previously been changed or downloaded, making the downloads sizeable/manageable.
Rather than redownloading each year's, with their hundreds of 20Meg photos (just in case SmugMug disappears, or has some unanticipated problem)
I only want to keep a backup of Smupgmug photos offline. Or, upon seeing a missing keyword, enter it outside of SmugMug, and then reupload it?

Thanks...A Happy Camper

    When returning your photos to you, SmugMug doesn't make any changes to your file -- the exact file you gave SmugMug is the file it returns to you. There's been a feature request to have an option to embed any changes into the file first -- I'll note your vote for it.
