Restore Exif data to a TIFF file?

I can convert my raw files to TIFF complete with Exif data. However when I do a Save As in a graphics editor the Exif data is stripped out.
Is there a way I can save the Exif data before processing the TIFF file and then 'add' the Exif data back onto the TIFF file after processing it?

I read that there is such a capability but I have never heard of anyone or any program that actually uses EXIF with TIFF.

I have been a moderator on the Digital Camera forum for several years and the subject has never come up.


Does anyone have something to add???
I am open to something new.

That 'trackoverflow' URL looks promising. I don't know PHP but I will try it.

PHP is not required.

The discussion there was how to implement a web site to do this on the back end. Again, no PHP needed.
