What version of Camera Raw? (if you are not using another software)
Why shoot raw if you're converting to JPEG anyway?
PS (all versions, I believe) strip most of the EXIF data off when saving. When using "Save for Web" all EXIF data is stripped.
Sometimes quite frustrating
Ramon, you asked "Why shoot raw if you're converting to JPEG anyway?"
Please don't take offense, but that is a "silly" question.
No, I don't take offense, but in my view what is silly is NOT my question, but the practice of saving in a lossy format.
Personally I don't need JPEGs except to illustrate a point in a web discussion occasionally . I save all my converted raw files as PSDs (one could also use TIFFs), and save a copy as a JPEG at the end of my workflow only when required.
For someone to save a converted raw image as a JPEG right off the bat is far from an ideal practice.
Finally, there is no other rationale for saving as a JPEG except to save space (smaller file size), and it should not come as a surprise to anyone that Saving for Web tries to yield the smallest possible size and, therefore, strips as much data as it can.
Ramon....if that is the way you read it, I agree.
I assumed that he kept the RAW NEFs, but wanted the full EXIF info in any JPEGs he created.
I know that I would, many time, like more complete EXIF info when I post on my web site.
John, you can include exif like copyright, date created and file description using SFW.
To do so you must choose include XMP data using the little triangle right next to preset.
This makes the files a little bigger, for example, I convert a portrait file to height 600 pixels and without XMP included the size is 60 kb, with the XMP included it is 84 kb.
