Hello to all
That's my problem: when I download my photos from the memory stick to my computer, I use Photoshop to make some fixes (resize, cropping, unsharp etc). I have notice that if I didn't use Photoshop, when I upload a photo to TE, the TE takes automaticaly from the photo some options like Exposure etc.
And my question is: what I must do in the Photoshop to prevent loosing these infos from my photo? What to do, when I'm saving a changed photo to TE not to loose all of them?
Thanks in advanced

What version of Photoshop do you have? I use Photoshop CS and with the operation that you have mentionned, CS retained all the EXIF info in my pictures.

Thank you for your respond. I use PS 7.0

I just tried out PS 7.0 and it did keep my EXIF information. Did you open the JPEG file, modified it and save it or you have some other intermediate steps?

If you use the "Save for the web" feature in PS 7.0 the EXIF field is removed from the picture file.

Yes, save for the web strips the EXIF information from the photo, even with Photoshop CS. Mpampis is most likely doing this. If you chose "save as" rather than "save for the web", you will keep the EXIF.

I'm doing the following steps:
1) I'm loading the photo
2) Doing some changes like unsharp mask, brightness/contrast etc.
3) Saving from the option "File > Save for the web..."

As I said earlier "Save for the web" strips the EXIF field from the picture file. Therefore all the informations about the picture are gone and can't be automaticaly filled in TE.

Sorry but I didn't noticed that you said this before! What can I do? The "Save for the web" is the most good tool for saving photos for the TE! Any suggestions?

The only option is "Save as...". Of course, your original file will maintain the EXIF, it just will not be uploaded automatically.

This time as Darren wrote :-) use the "Save as" and play around with the level of compression.
I also prefer "Save for the web" but then I've enter informations manualy. I've made my choice.

You can use Image->Resize for resizing the picture then use File->Save As to save your modified version. This would keep the EXIF information intact.
Thanks to Romain and Darren about the Save-to-web peculiarity.

Finally, I use "Save as..." option and keep the EXIF for my photos!
Thank you very much all of you who respond!!
