ExifCleaner is a program which allows you to remove individual Exif tags or to strip Exif data entirely. This protects your privacy, helps you to hide unneeded, undesirable or sometimes sensitive information - about the image, photographer and location. Did you know that every digital photo produced with a camera contains it?

ExifCleaner doesn't alter actual image data - all operations are lossless for picture. Cleaning metainformation only saves disk space and server bandwidth, reduces download times, it's expecially evident on small-sized or large number of images.

Exif cleaner can also be useful for photo professionals, to get rid of the XMP, IPTC (including the whole Photoshop IRB section) as well as Exif metatada in photomontage works.

Program can work in a batch mode and can also be integrated into the Windows Explorer shell for quick access to its major functions.

You can also download portable version of ExifCleaner here (File size: 1.33 MB).

System Requirements:

Windows 2000 up to Windows 7, both x32 and x64; Intel Pentium II or AMD-K6 300 megahertz (MHz) or better; 7 MB of RAM; 1 MB HD





File Size:

1.35 MB



Comments on ExifCleaner

What is "Exif"?

Stands for "Exchangeable Image File Format".

Practically all digital photo cameras include additional information (metadata) with pictures or audio captured with the camera.

For photos this type of information can be Items like "ExposureTime", "ISOSpeedRatings", "ShutterSpeedValue" and "ImageUniqueID".

There are also a stack of Exif GPS tags - for newer cameras that support GPS (ie. Satellite Tracking) to pinpoint where the photo was taken - which will work with sites like Google Earth.

For a list of Exif Tags - visit Here

Also check http://www.exif.org/ for
* Sample Images & the related exif data (for different camera models)
* The Exif specifications

I've included some additional Freeware - to help photographers make the organisation and management of their photos a little bit easier. I have added whether the software can edit Exif data or if the program only supports view access.

The Good
* Straightforward and easy to use.
* Can strip the EXIF of multiple images at once.
* Users are given the option to clean whole EXIF data, just specific tags, or to clean all EXIF data except specific tags.
* Users are given the option to replace original files, or create new renamed files.
* Supports drag + drop.
* Has a portable version.

The Bad
* The right-click context menu entry doesn't register properly (at least in Windows 7).
* The ability to edit/batch edit the EXIF data of image files would be a really nice "plus" to the program.

Is the only option to erase the data, and not edit it?
