    How do you make sure the exif file makes its way into a file conversion? I've been working w/ RAW solely now for about a week, and I just noticed that after I convert them to JPG,the exif file is gone. Am I missing a step here, in order to keep it in?

    How is it that you are saving your jpegs? Some saving processes strip the exif info in an effort to reduce the file size.

    i select the file through the organizer...click on file, export to diff location (or something like that) then convert it that way.

    I am not familiar with elements, but my suggestion would be to try editing your raws in Canon's conversion program "Digital Photo Professional" and have it save out the tiffs or jpegs that you then edit in photoshop. Then just save the files normally. Probably someone who knows more about PSE can fill in a bit more on that end.
