Keeping Exif Info Intact

Concerning Pentax day. Could anybody explain how I make sure that my Exif information stays with the photo when I upload to the Forums?
Thank you

Resizing for web in Elements 6 will guarantee that your exif info will be stripped.

Then I would guess that the same would be true of Elements 7?

Pretty sure any "save for web" will kill it.

Don't resize for web with Any software. Instead, do a simple resize. I don't know how elements handles it but every version of Photoshop I've used, there is an Image Size option in the IMAGE drop down menu.

When you resize make sure your largest dimension is less than 1024 pixels. That way when you upload it, your exif should remain in tact.

It's the 'Save for Web' assistant that drops the EXIF info, not the actual resizing which you may have achieved in a variety of methods. So do a "Save as" instead of using the 'Save for Web' dialog

In the gimp,

menu file -> save as
in the 'save image' dialog, specify new filename and click save
a new dialog window with title 'save as jpeg', opens
expand the advanced options and make sure that you have checked the tickbox for 'save exif data'

done; just open the file in a viewer to check

OK, here we go....

Thank you all for a really fast response!!! With this photo, I'm using elements 7 with the Image adjustment instead of the "save for web". I call the photo"Kinda Contrasty"
Or maybe I should (With all of you guys fantastic help) call the photo: "Problem solved !!"
Oh, and by the way, all I did was resize it. That really is the color of the building!

Great.

Looks by the way as if you have a spec of dust on the sensor in the left top corner of the image

Put this in your toolbox to get around all the senseless crapware that butchers it.
