Just had a thought - it would be great to be able to edit EXIF data in PP, we often find we need to edit photo[s] then re-open later to edit the EXIF data. Would be great to have that in the workflow.

I guess 2 models:

1. Editing EXIF with Image changes saves whole image
2. Just editing EXIF would update the image file without changing the image

Hey Andy, thanks for the suggestion! Just out of curiosity, what kind of EXIF fields do you usually find yourself needing to edit?

Thanks Andrius,

It really varies but its fixing up things like:

Date & Time (usually from wrong settings in cameras)
GPS location/coordinates (either removal completely or fixing up)
Camera details (sometimes clients don't want Camera information logged)
Image Description
Category
Copyright
Credit
Headlines and Keywords
Comment
Software (if the image was to be made public for security purposes)

+1 I second this feature request. The ability to edit EXIF would be most useful!
