    I've noticed that Flickr hasn't been saving the EXIF data of my photos anymore. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I know the data is still in the photos cause when I upload them to another site, the data is there.

    Not sure this is the best place to ask, but what is EXIF data? Is it what stores the shutter speed, ISO, f-stop, etc.?

    Yes exactly. Shows what settings your camera was when the photo was taken.

    Ahh Okay, Thanks...so on that other page you have the image on...the EXIF data is in the "Details" portion of the page?

    Edit: Not in the Details portion but under the "Picture" sub-heading?

    I bet it is not flickr, but you.

    I took this pic a few days ago and the EXIF is there:

    I think I found out what it is. You can only view EXIF data on Flickr if it's "original size". I've been resizing my pictures to 1800 x 1200 and the largest Flickr will let you view without being a subscriber is 1024x683...thus not showing EXIF data. So I can either resize to 1024x683 or smaller, or I can subscribe which I probably should so I can have more than 3 sets.

    well hit me over the head with a spoon....I never noticed that lol. I was paying more attention to the info not showing up on the actual image when viewed on these forums. But I found the reason for that, being the image wasn't the the original size that I uploaded. It was resized by flickr. When you right click the photos the info doesn't show up unless it's the actual original size.

    Slightly off topic, but is there a way to stop Photomatix from stripping the EXIF data?

    What is it stripping? Whenever I've done HDRs in Photomatix it retains any Exif data that is consistent throughout every photo. Shutter speed gets wiped, but model, make, ISO, aperture, etc. all stay.
