    Saving Metadata to TIFF/JPEG using CS5

    Stupid question I expect but I can't find the answer in CS5 Help or online.

    I want to preserve the metadata when I save my RAW files as TIFF (for post processing) and JPEG (for posting on the web). I understand that ACR will create an XMP file but surely there's a way to preserve the EXIF data in the TIFF or JPEG file?

    Or have I got it all confused?

    Cheers.

    It's ok, ACR doesn't remove EXIF data. Once you open the image into Photoshop go to File > File Info, and you'll find it's all there.

    Actually, it's harder to remove EXIF data than it is to preserve it

    When you use File > Save for web and devices, you'll find there are various options for how much data to preserve with the file. You get a choice of none, all, copyright only, etc. It's all in a drop-down menu in the interface - you'll see it.

    when in CS5, make sure your photo is in 8 bit mode and use FILE SAVE AS to include the EXIF with the JPG. If you do not have your file in 8 bit, you will not have the choice of JPG from the drop down list.

    As far as I am aware TIF files include EXIF automatically.

    Note that FILE SAVE FOR WEB will automatically remove EXIF data, unless you adjust the settings in the FILE SAVE FOR WEB screen, to include EXIF

    Thanks guys. I work in 16 bit and use "Save for web" to convert to JPEG. Now found the Metadata dropdown option.

    Cheers.

    For TIFF I seem to recall you need to save as uncompressed to keep the metadata. When you have finished with your TIFF files and want to export to the Internet or for distribution, then use File and Save As

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.
