Is there any way to preserve or restore the image data from the original into the edited file?
sorry for being off topic.

Process and save files in a staging area.
Copy EXIF back over with Breezebrowser (v2.7a messes up with Canon focal length, though. Chris says he will fix in next version)

Use Exifer to copy IPTC and EXIF onto resulting jpg images -- to tag with copyright for Google to find.

If you are doing this manualy as everybody sugested than... no problem, as everybody said, copy/paste the exif data. If you are doing this automaticaly (I extract the exif data with a perl script and post it on each pictures' html page) than the only solution I found is to use Thumbs+, another graphical software packet that doesn't destroys the exif info.
Actualy what Photoshop ditches is the manufacturer info from the exif data the rest of the exif information is intact so will still get camera model and unusefull stuff like that.
If you want to see the result of my script check out www.pambucol.com and then go to Trips and pick any of the latest stuff.
