Need the EXIF data for Sony Digital Picture Frame (devise to show pictures electronically)

I just bought one of those Sony 'Digital Picture Frames' (DPF) and it needs JPEG pics along WITH the "EXIF data" or it will ignore them.

Scanned a bunch of pictures and they played well on the DPF. However when I edited some in GIMP they no longer work. The DPF ignores then and displays a "?" mark. I checked the PROPERTIES of the edited pics on the DPF, and they have NO DATA whatsoever (all the data from when the picture was taken. ie camera, time, format, and so on)

I believe I just read that the "plug in" to do that (preserve the original data and SAVE it with the new edited picture) does not come downloaded with GIMP to save the data to the new edited JPEG. Assuming this is in fact what I need.

Can anyone tell me if I am on the right track?... Which Plug in do I need? and how to install it?

TIA

The last time someone had problems with devices like this, it was due to the Progressive setting when exporting JPEG files, not the presence or absence of Exif data. Check the JPEG export dialog for this.
