EXIF Problems
Sometimes the resized version of a photograph does not contain the EXIF data, and cannot be validated. Normally, if the original is uploaded, the EXIF information becomes available, and the entry is accepted.

During our most recent challenge, Peanut ran into the situation where the original would not upload into Panachallenge. I asked him to share his experience with resolving the issue, as I thought it would be helpful to other members.

Peanut works with Photoshop and Lightroom, and had always been able to upload the original using Export as with all the boxes ticked to say "attach the metadata". After updating both of these programs, the EXIF would no longer transfer, no matter what was used. Peanut contacted Adobe, and after several chats with various people, was advised to resize using Photoshop/Image/resize and save as.

Hope this helps anyone with a similar problem.
