Is it possible for Photokey 2 Pro to preserve the EXIF data from the foreground image when exporting the composite image? It would seem that when you Export (save) the EXIF data gets stripped from the image. is it possible for the EXIF data to remain embedded in the new file when saved, like you can do in PS?.

Yep, there were a number of users requesting EXIF abilities, so it was added to the software in version 4.

I'd like to bump this thread.

Sorry if I've overlooked something but I can't seem to figure out where EXIF data comes into play in photokey. All of our images are put online for viewing and run through our composite software by way of EXIF data so it's very important that it's a part of the image. Is there a way to preserve this data to the exported image? I've yet to find mention of this anywhere except in the bulleted features of the program that states it uses the EXIF data.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
