When you make adjustments to your pics use the "Save As" menu item instead of a straight "Save". This will make a copy, keeping the original file and info unchanged. Be sure to give the file a different name or the original will be overwritten.

The beginner's forum is always fine for any questions, but do note there is a forum specifically for discussing software as well.

I use GIMP along with it's RAW plug-in, UFRaw. It's all free and a little bit rough around the edges, so if you like the DIY-kinda spirit, this is for you. (I am not totally in the DIY camp when it comes to software, but this is what my bank balance dictates I can use, at the moment) My EXIF data does get saved. Whatever program you choose, there will probably be an option to preserve or save EXIF data.

I do not have any experience with it, but Photoshop Elements is fairly inexpensive.

Thank You billtin59 I might try that.

ChooseAName I have the same problem with the bank balance, that's why I think I'll also try a free program for now. Thanks for the reply

Marc thank you for letting me know, I will post there in future
