Default PhotoPad Warning

I have installed a few free photo editing programs for beginners, so as to make an educated choice for a cash-strapped beginner friend.

In testing PhotoPad, I found a very disconcerting deal breaker (PhotoPad is not alone in this); PhotoPad strips away ALL of the EXIF data and any other metadata, including any VERY IMPORTANT camera-applied information, such as Date Taken, Author, Exposure, etc., from the saved jpeg.

I researched and hunted and could not find any means of changing this behavior.

I think a warning about this behavior should be included in the "Best Free Digital Image Editor" review.

If I am missing something and there is a way to change this behavior, please let me know.

Currently running 64-bit Windows 7 Pro and 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium
