Preserving EXIF

I have run into a bit of a problem of late. I find that the photos I am taking, and then doing a little PP on are showing no exif.
I took a photo direct from camera, resized only, in PP, "Saved As" to retain original as well, but no EXIF is retained.
I have submitted many photos over a long period to PPG, no problem,(other than 100% non acceptance) now every shot comes up unacceptable because of no retained EXIF for eg.

Is it a camera setting that is the problem?
Is it happening during PP?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated..

It is likely stripped in the PP, what software do you use for PP? Are your pictures taken in RAW or JPEG?

Most likely whatever software you are using provides an option to control whether EXIF is preserved or not.

I am using Corel Photomatix, which I like, as it suits my needs well.
I will do some more research in there and see what I can come up with.
Will report back.

If you still have the original image you can use PhotoME (which is free) to export the Exif and then import it into the processed image.

I use Thumbs Plus for a lot of simple PP task, I can even use a watermark and keep my info intact. I also use Photobucket to upload my shots online since Pbase seems to strip all data.

Thanks for all the valuable information guys. Yes I have PhotoMe and have done as suggested.
Looked into my PP program as well, and now have overcome the problem .
Many thanks from a rather naive computer operator. At my stage of life, its going too fast for me, but I hang in there. Thanks heaven for a capable daughter
