I see many images on Commons that have replaced info about the camera with info about the processing in Adobe tools. I don't know where exactly that camera metadata is getting stripped out, but I wish that it would be left intact after processing in Adobe tools and uploading to Commons.

Adobe is the inventor of XMP. Photoshop is probably the most complete
implementation of XMP in existence.

I'm not that familiar with photoshop, but its highly likely that it
properly maintains both exif and XMP metadata after any post

We prefer Exif and XMP equally (See also my other email).
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:EXIF has some info about
how things work at commons.
