Default copying EXIF data

Maybe I missed this feature? I'm using PhotoShop Elements 2.0 and I wanted to copy the EXIF data from the origional to the edited image.

I process with neatimage and then edit in photoshop and all the EXIF data is gone afterwards. But I want to get it into the edited copy so that I can use photo album creation software which will read that data and use it as part of the gallery.

Can photoshop do it? Can something else? I also have irfanview.

Copied & edited from an answer I posted previously somewhere in this forum........

The two best programs I use (both free) for inspecting the data from the camera are "Exifer" from www.exifer.friedemann.info, and "Photostudio" from www.stuffware.co.uk.

Exifer has a wonderful facility for showing you only the *differences* in camera settings between two selected images. I think you're supposed to be able to save the data and put it back in the image later, but I haven't fully explored this facility.

Photostudio is the only package I have found that will allow inspection of the exif data, rotation and resizing, and then resaving in a file suitable for putting back on the camera, still containing the exif data. Other packages (try xnview from www.xnview.com) do save the exif data, but I find the camera then won't recognise the files and display them (e.g., via the AV output)._

I'm sorry I didn't say this sooner.

Thanks for the tips. My goal is to add data to the origional picture (where it was taken & more) then work over a copy with neat image and photoshop. Then when I've got it right, duplicate the data back into the edited copy and set it up for processing with jalbum and merge it into my web site and post it.

Without that EXIF data copying, I wouldn't be able to do this. Now I just have to see if this plan works!

PSP-8 preseves EXIF data after editing using SAVE or SAVE AS ( of course you must save in an EXIF compatible file format). You can also edit the EXIF data to add annotations.
