I found the answer. If you have edited a picture in Google+, go to the left lower corner and click Options. You can download the edited picture there.

Why not just plugin your phone and pull them down that way. No need to even involve Google+ at that point.
Another option might be to goto https://picasaweb.google.com and see if the photos are uploaded there. Perhaps the files are put there by Google+?
