EXIF Data

I've been working on some assignments for online courses, and recently took a series of photos using different WB settings. I use Elements for post-processing .. after uploading my images, I deleted them from the card () thinking I had all the EXIF data in Elements. Unfortunately, Elements only says "Auto" or "Manual" for WB ...

Does anyone know at this point if I can retain WHICH Manual WB setting was used? I cannot remember which was which!

If there's another way to get this data, please help! Thanks ...

Try Pentax Photo Browser that comes with Pentax cameras if you have it.

I shoot RAW, but keep a database of exif data using the "Save data list" under tools in PPB.

You can do that with jpgs before processing in Elements.

Thanks for this PPB tip. Do you have a way to get EXIF data from teh CVS file back into photos--for example those edited by progams which scrub the EXIF data?

ExifTool by Phil Harvey
And there are tools with a graphical user interface using exiftool underneath.

BTW, exiftool or PhotoME would be tools to look into all available EXIF data as well. To only read, I recommend PhotoME.
