Elements: EXIF not exported

A little problem with the EXIF; it appears that PSE 12 doesn't like to upload it, actually, it just likes to swollow it up, spit it out and then totally ignore it. The EXIF data is present and available in the Organiser, but not once it has been post processed. I transfered an image that had been processed in PSE 12 to LR and saved it under a different name, but still no EXIF. I then imported this batch of images into LR did a little bit of what evers just to say it had been processed and all the EXIF was there, including my camera lens.

I have checked my preferences in PSE 12 in the 'Saving Files' dialogue under 'File Compatability' there is an UNTICKED box which reads 'ignore camera data [exif] profiles.

Although my images are shot in Raw, as is required by EPZ I save them as JPEGs, so, I am at a loss as to why the EXIF has done a runner such that I have to manually input the EXIF from the Organiser info, which is very time consuming.

A thought has just occurred to me, which may or may not be significant. When the image opens in Edit I immediately make a duplicate but save it under a different name in order to preserve the original, so throughout the process I am actually working with the duplicate because of course I end up with two tabs in Edit.

While I am here, just thought I would mention that it is also frustrating that I constantly have to go to preferences in order to ensure that I have a round brush, it seems to prefer the little cross hair that I simply can not work with

Any help and advice would be appreciated.

Chris is correct. Duplicating the layer only moves the pixel data.

Choose File>Duplicate... in Elements to duplicate the document and the metadata.
