EXIF data: WHen do they get loss in PS ?
I just took a shot in RAW, processed it in photoshop and did some editing. I uploaded it in Pbase, and I realise that the EXIF data is not available. Most of my shots show EXIF, while some dont. I was wondering what processes cause the EXIF data to be lost when photo editing takes place ?

Did you use the "Save for Web" option? Used noise reduction software like Neat Image?
Think these will strip the Exif Data....... but I may be wrong....

AFAIK, there are 2 ways where PS will lose your EXIF data:

The 3rd way is when you upload to a photo site which resizes your image. Sometimes EXIF data can get lost that way too.
Just my 2cents...
