Preserving EXIF data in images...

Hi All

I seem to be having some trouble preserving the EXIF data in my images. My workflow is E-3 -> Lightroom - > Adobe Photoshop

Can someone let me know what I need to do to preserve the EXIF data when I want to display an image on the web, especially when using these applications.

Thanks.

John

Are you using save for web on Photoshop????I belive this removes EXIF data.
I develop my Raws with Silkypix which give you the options of Exif and non Exif jpegs.
I then use Photoshop but when I am going to post on the web just resize to 800x600 and compress the file.

Hope this helps.

Forget about using Save for web in Photoshop, use Save as... and choose compression to give you no more than 200-250K files (assuming your image's longest side is about 800 pixels, which is what I would recommend).

How are you exporting from Lightroom to Photoshop? Are you using Photoshop as an external editor directly from Lightroom? You could export manually as a DNG file. This is an intermediate form of RAW file and so will preserve the most image data. It will also preserve EXIF data.

Re: Preserving EXIF data in images...

Save for web in Photoshop CS will remove the EXIF info.

I use

1) Camera > Camera Raw > Photoshop CS3

2) Resize: bicubic sharper (best for reduction)

3) Save as jpeg

Never used Lightroom but I guess if you import into Lightroom the EXIF is kept in the database rather than in the file? Maybe a Lighroom person can comment if you need to export the EXIF info.

I'm a recent convert to Lightroom (it takes and age to crack the ever so steep initial learning curve - then it suddenly all makes sense) and I have no problem preserving the EXIF data.

Ok, thanks Ian.

So, how do you get your image from Lightroom to Photoshop...?

I tend to use the 'Shift-Apple-E' key combination which brings up the Export dialogue box, and then I ensure 'Minimise Embedded MetaData' is ticked. Then I use Save-as in Photoshop - but I still get no EXIF data.

Something's up I guess, how do you export data out of Lightroom Ian?

Found this info on Lightroom

Minimize Embedded Metadata Includes only copyright metadata fields in the exported photo.
from

http://livedocs.adobe.com/en_US/Ligh...8CEBD95FF.html

So try running the export and not checking the 'Minimise Embedded MetaData' box. Does this fix it?

Re: Preserving EXIF data in images...

FWIW, when you choose the "export" file from Lightroom, you can select, to keep the exif intact.

I'm finding that Paint Shop Pro seems to strip the EXIF data from jpgs. Using Master 2 seems to eliminate the problem as it saves jpgs with exif data intact.
