I am using XP Media Center OS, updated as of yesterday. I have been scanning several hundred old photos using Photoshop and Epson scanner. After I scan the photos I write notes, dates, that I find on the original photos in the comments section of Photoshop. However, I want family members who do not use Photoshop to also have access to my notes. To that end, I use the "comments" section of the file properties window to capture the information so that the notes travel with the picture files and are available using generic Windows OS. The file format I'm using is JPG.

The problem is that when I enter the note and apply or save it, sometimes the note is saved and sometimes not. Sometimes it's saved right away, but I check later and the note is gone??? I cannot figure out what is going on--any ideas how I might fix this problem?

Have you tried attaching the notes prior to editing the .jpg with PhotoShop?
