View Full Version : Question on EXIF info droped in CS3

In Adobe CS3 I noticed that if I reduce my photo in "Image size" it has the EXIF on the file. When I reduce the size in "Save for web and devices..." it drops the EXIF information. Is there a setting that leaves the EXIF info on when you use this feature? I sometime want to use "Save for web" to get a larger visual size but a smaller file.

Thanks

I'm not aware of a way to preserve exif data in save for web mode.

I have tried the tip to in that Adobe forum thread to enable XMP metadata in Save for Web (Photoshop CS3), but I still don't see any exif data in saved JPEGs.

Photoshop CS4, I now see, has very flexible options for including or omitting metadata in Save for Web.

Surely "save-as" in Jpeg mode keeps the EXIF. Just have to do the resizing to 72dpi manually. Or am I missing the point (as usual)?

It not much use as its saved as a XMP file and cannot be read by any web photo hosting sites , its there but you can only see the exif info in dam programs that can read XMP files!

Save for Web does seem to have the knack of creating much lighter files and avoid colour space mis-matches in Web browsers.

I found this link (http://216.239.59.104/search?q=cache:jZWyuFAtwxQJ:www.w3.org/Status+browser+that+can+open+xmp+data&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=8&gl=uk)to W3C which in turn has a link to rdjpgxmp (http://www.w3.org/People/Bos/JPEG-XMP/) which appears to be a tool for embedding and removing xmp data in/from a jpeg.
Any use?

PS CS4 save for web still appears to lose exif data even with the "all' metadata option ticked :(

Strange that Ian as ACDsee Pro2.5 can read most of the info in the saved for web image using xmp in CS3:)
