Loss of EXIF data?

It seems that every time I do any PP using Photoshop, all the EXIF data is stripped from the image. Is there a way I can prevent this?

Are you saving as a JPG using the option "Save for Web..."? If so, that will strip EXIF data. Try using "Save as..." and then choose .JPG and EXIF data will be retained. I do that all the time and all my images have EXIF data.
HTH.

Hmmm.... I tried it with all the available choices and it continues to strip all the data. Odd, that. I always save my original images, so I can always revert back to them should I NEED the data.... but just kinda' aggravating to have to do so.

Photoshop certainly adds a few tags to the EXIF, but it shouldn't strip any of the existing information. Have you tried uploading a file to our exif checker before and after to compare the tags?

For what it is worth if I process my raw image to tif then open in GIMP it loses the exif. But not so with jpg.
What are you processing your raws to?

I use CS2 and it strips the EXIF also. I shoot RAW. But saving as jpeg, and using the Save As option doesn't matter, it still strips the EXIF.

A possible workaround can be an exif editor like e.g. exiftool (I'm sure there are others that offer the same functionality). You can copy the info from the original file to the processed jpeg. Yes, it adds an additional step in your workflow.
