PhotoRoy,

 

Thank you for posting.  RAW is a lossless file format in that it has all of the original image data.  Once it is processed, or converted, some of that data is lost in the process.

If you are asking if the EXIF data can be erased, yes, it can. In Adobe Light Room 4 that is a option before printing or saving for the web or filling. In Photo Shop it is under 'File info'. Even just parts of it can be erased.

It may be in other software, also.
