you learned this information on this list?

to the best of my knowledge, gimp still does not use exif information.
while it is perhaps not the best software to introduce a newbie to
jpegtran is a commandline doey that will do that for you.  although,
maybe after the newbie sees the commandline work, it will make other
"new things" easier to digest, i dunno.

from what i can see, the developers have not done this because right now
there is no way for gimp to do this to jpegs in a lossless fashion.
and, i might be wrong about this -- i just read things here and there
and put that idea together myself.

and really, it is too bad that the cameras dont handle png's.  at least
mine doesnt.  and when i went to make prints, the kiosk print making
machine didnt read png either.

anyways, good luck what ever you end up doing,
