(I did this for my local photography club when we met on 12th October. We have a fortnightly project. The topic here is 'Distortion'. I haven't entered before. I'm not sure whether the EXIF shows?)

Sorry Electra not seeing the EXIF.
Is the image 1024px or under on it's longest side and under 250kb in file size?

No, it's bigger! I've just installed EXIF Viewer for Chrome. I'll resize and try again...

Thank you, Ryan!

Closer, now instead of 'Exif not found' the fields are there but empty.
Is the file size under 250kb? Sometimes but not always if the file size is really close to 250kb i.e. 245-250kb the exif will still get stripped. Otherwise if you are using layers to create this shot in PS the image need to be the lowest layer in the stack when you save as that is where the exif will be taken from in the outputted jpg.

The size is well under 250 kb; it's about 130 kb. I wasn't using layers and I don't use PS or Lightroom; I use Paintshop Pro, Silkypix (sometimes) and FastStone Image Viewer. As I said, I've installed EXIF Viewer for Chrome. Is that where the problem might be? Thanks for helping; I'd like to learn how to do this and I've read a forum thread that's related to this issue.

An exif viewer for Chrome won't be the problem, might be PS pro or Silkypix but I don't have any experience with those. Perhaps @hooferinsane or @Roger S might have some ideas?

I use ULead PhotoImpact 10 which is the engine that Corel uses in it's PSP. (Corel bought out ULead a few years ago). I will try the 30 day trial of PSP to see if I can work out how the exports keep or don't keep the EXIF. I'll get back to you on this later.

Is it possible that you have a windows settting that automatically removes EXIF data. I know you can remove EXIF when posting imagesfrom Windows machines so there may be a setting that does it automatically for all images.

Hi PAG52!

Thanks for your help :)!

I've just checked that. I have Windows 10 and the EXIF data shows unless you deliberately delete it. This link was useful:

I downloaded PSP trial and did a test on one of my pics. It was resized to 1024 and "save as" JPEG at 240kb. All the tick boxes were automatically set to preserve EXIF. I then posted that pic to the forum and all the EXIF remained intact, so it does work.
PS, I have the latest version of Windoze 10 - 64 bit, 8 gigs of ram on an Acer desktop.

Roger ~ Thanks for this - very useful to know. This pic was edited in FastStone Image Viewer (very good free program!), which saves EXIF. It was shot in RAW and converted to JPEG. The EXIF shows up in File Explorer.

Look, delete this entry for now and I'll try again, either later in the month or in the November competition. I've got a degree in Modern Languages from about a century ago and I did an IT Diploma in 2012 - I'm sure there's a bit of brain still left somewhere :D!

I've got to go and cook dinner for a friend now (yes, I can cook as well!) so I'd better get cracking. Thanks to you, Ryan and PAG52 for your help; I've had a very educational afternoon:)!

Merci beaucoup, Elizabeth
