EXIF information will be read when opening and saving  JPEG, JPEG2000 and TIFFfiles.  It will also be read when opening RAW files and saved only to JPEG, JPEG2000 or TIFF output. High dynamic range RAW files will be read, but saving with preservation of dynamic range is possible only with 48 bit TIFF output.
