For some reason my EXIF settings never show up. I normally load my photos into Adobe bridge and then edit. Could I be doing something wrong?

How are you saving them?
Adobe strips EXIF if you use the save for web option.
I've never understood why, my copyright message (added to EXIF automatically by the camera) is MORE use for images on the web than those stuck on my hard drive...

I find saving as tiff causes loss of exif, even if subsequently reimported then resaved as a jpeg. Some editing programs have an option whether to save the exif or not, so may only require a tick in a box somewhere.
Just don't use save for web if you want to keep the exif intact. If it's to upload here, resize to 1000 pixels and just do a normal jpeg save.
Most web sites now have their own server software to resize/make the image suitable (often ImageMagik) so not much to be gained from 'save for web' anymore. It's now just considered a legacy option and treated as such in recent PhotoShop editions.

I think there's an export option, but I rarely use adobe.

I read somewhere that Adobe always write over maker data with their junk

Yes, Adobe certainly does. I think part of the problem is that manufacturers aren't consistent in the use of some of the the fields meaning they cannot be described/identified accurately.

No the problem is that lightroom just doesn't bother with it. There are other fields in EXIF that are specifically for processing data which is where Adobe should put 'it's junk'
'Exif.Image.ProcessingSoftware' sounds like the perfect spot

It doesn't need to understand the existing data, just reproduce it.
Many other graphics editing packages such as FastStone preserve the EXIF, by default.

Just use "Save As" instead of "Save for Web", after you have resized of course.
Best regards, John

When you save for web there is an option to save exif under the metadata tab. Set the dropdown on " all " and most of the exif required is saved. There are a couple of other options as well, one of them being "none". Presumably this is how yours is set if you are using Photoshop
