Metadata loss when uploading files

Metadata loss when uploading files
All metadata was lost when files were uploaded and sent. By metadata I mean image captions and keywords. I inserted metadata via Image - Properties - Comments while in GIMP xcf, saved files to JPEG, and uploaded. Metadata looked OK in JPEG before uploading and is still there in my files, but didn't survive the upload. Thank you.

RE: Metadata loss when uploading files
You mean on GimpForums or elsewhere? There are sites that strip metadata from pictures they store (Facebook, among others, IIRC...). But the matter has to be taken with the webmasters/admins of such sites.

Thanks for the reply.

These files were uploaded to my stock agent's website, if that's any help.

Then ask them... the problem is with them, and not with Gimp or any metadata editing utility you may have used.
