EXIF problems on E-Group Challenge entries

So far all the entries I have received for the 5th E-Group Challenge have been rejected because they have no EXIF data so here are a few pointers for you.

If you are using Photoshop don't use Save for Web what you need to do is resize the image, Image / Image Size and set the pixels to 800 for the longest dimension. Then you need to use save as, File / Save As and remember to save it under a different name to stop you overwriting the original image.

If you are exporting from Lightroom to Photoshop do not tick the minimize meta data button.

If you are using a Mac and have Mail set to include the picture in the message this can also strip the EXIF data. You need to put the picture in a folder and attach the folder to be sure of preserving the EXIF file.

If any other members have any hints please add them to the thread.
