I know this may be common sense for alot of us but there are often images up for the assignments and have no EXIF data.
I thought I'd share a quick tip for retaining it and its as simple as any tip out there.
When you download your image and do any type of post work in an editing program alot of the time you will wind up stripping the EXIF out of the file when you save it. The way to do it and retain it is to be sure to always slick Save as.... instead of just the save option.
This may not work for all apps but it does for most so some of you that have not been considered due to no data you might want to check and see how you are saving the file.
Hope it helps some of you out......
I have a program that warns me before I do certain editting... that I will be losing the EXIF. Is it alright if we use the post-editted picture, and upload both that and the original to flickr - the just link to the original EXIF? Or is that too much work for the mods... as I know they are looking at so many pictures?
An easy way to make sure that we can see the exif from the original would be to put a thumbnail with the original in your post on the forums (and if you want to copy and paste the exif that'd be great too)

I guess I will just make it habit to post the EXIF when I post my pictures.
Here is another question though - there is quite a bit of info listed... do you want all of it, or are there a few specifics that you do need?
not so much as uploading it but its the fact when you switch it from app to app it tends to get stripped.
I just hate people who enter the contest we run for the assignments sometimes gets left out and they may not even know why.
