Default GPS data - vanishing !

I have been experimenting with adding GPS data to my photographs, in preparation for a trip to the West Indies and the USA.
I have struck a problem - which may be "finger trouble" on my part, or a "design feature" of Photoshop.

Camera is a Nikon D7100. If I take a photograph in .nef + .jpg and download the 2 files into Bridge, GPS data is present in both. If I work on the files and save them as .psd the GPS data is still present. However, if I then export from CC2017 as .jpg the GPS data vanishes from the exported file.
The "export as" file settings seem to give only two options for metadata:- "None" or "Copyright and Contact info" - neither of which I want.
I can manually copy/paste the GPS data from the original file into the exported one, but this is somewhat laborious and does appear to be re-inventing the horse and cart - with square wheels !

If anyone has come across this particular problem I would be most grateful to hear about it - especially if they have discovered a fix/workaround for it.

I don't normally use Photoshop, but I believe that it also has a "Save As" option that allows you to save in JPEG format. Have you given that feature a try?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
What he said.

Export strips the exif data

Save As maintains the exif data.

It's so obvious when you are told ! I had got myself fixated on the "export" command.

Many thanks for the poke in the ribs....
