When I remaster a photo in Samsung Gallery app, and then open Google Photos, both the original and remastered photos show up! 

Update – only the original version gets backed up. Remastered or otherwise edited pictures do not get backed up at all.

Precisely. For whatever reason Google Photos is picking them up and showing them to me. Not sure which version actually gets backed up, now that I come to think about it.

Google Photos is showing them ALL locally, but only backing up the originals. Edited / remastered do not get backed up. Samsung Gallery app only shows edited / remastered, as expected.

Sounds confusing really, but what about renaming the edited picture, I am thinking that Google photos isn't allowing people to over write a picture, like on phones ect, they give us an option to over write the original

Essentially Google Photos picks the first (oldest) version of each file, and backs up that one, regardless of the edits made to the image after being taken. So now imagine a scenario where you have 30 photos that you have remastered and/or otherwise edited. You then decide to use Google Photos for backing up your gallery. The end result will be that none of your edits will be saved.
