saving exif with new file name

Question; I work on a photo and want to resize and reename, would like to save metadata with new file. When I rename metadata does not seem to stay?

It should work as long as the software is reliable - GIMP or Photoshop should preserve the data. More common editors such as those built in to windows will on the other hand strip the data

Are you using 'Save for web'? That strips EXIF. Otherwise it can be done. I used to use an earlier version of PSE and it was more than capable of saving the EXIF into new names.

No, I was using save as- after resizing tiff. Save as .jpg and changing filename. I suppose I'll try changing name as tiff. Guess it sees it as new file. Thank you I'll haave to try tonite.

jhead is a program available for Windows, Macs & Linux which can strip EXIF info from a file, alter existing EXIF information, OR (relevant to your needs) copy EXIF from one file into another. I use Linux, and it's free in the repositories. I suspect the Windows version is freeware.

JPG, TIFF makes no difference. Suspect it's some sort of 'finger trouble' but as I don't have Elements I can't comment further. Suggest you look for a specialist Elements forum and ask there - Google might turn up the answer as well.

I just uploaded 12 images to my album and do not see exif. though before upload could click on it. Now I am confused as to embedding and posting to user gallery.
