A program that I use a lot that does this is PIXresizer; it also reduces the size of the image if you want. It works on single images and batch mode and its free, if you are interested in this sort of stuff, it's worth looking into.

To remove Exif data all I do is Save As in some old photo editing program, in my case Paint Shop Pro.

To edit Exif data I use the FREE program PhotoME which is available at the following link:-

I like XnView: it offers similar features and much more - and it is free.
Moreover, "Alles Bild(er) bereinigen"...From a German developer I would like to get a program management in excellent German free from mistakes like this one. Otherwise, I cannot rely on the software quality.

So based on the information given in the description, this program removes certain data from jpg and jpeg files? Is that actually legal to do; removing watermarks, copyright data, etc.?
I think this might be what reason Paul W gives why he is against this software.
Have we not already established much on copyright infringement agreements/laws over the issues surrounding torrent websites, pirating movies and music, and even software such as games and other software that is shared via peer to peer websites?
Is this not why Limewire got int0 big legal battles?

We point at the start of the software out that the removal of foreign copyrights may lead to prosecution.

"the last screen of the installation (in English) makes no sense at all"

I think: whatever you choose, the setup does not listen.

Uninstalled with Revo. 12 registry items and 3 files/folders left behind by "built in" uninstaller.

Companies "uninstall feedback" site doesn't list this program so no filled out. English language support poor.

As a photographer I'm opposed to this type of software for so many reasons

Reply   |   Comment by Paul W  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-84)

Stripping geodata is useful, but I agree why would anyone need to strip out copyright information? Besides anyone doing that is breaking the DMCA CMI provision, minimum $2500 hit per image.

Reply   |   Comment by John Warr  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-6)

To elaborate my thoughts on Paul W's comments, there is a lot of very important data in EXIF data, not just the stripping of location information. EXIF programs should allow for a minimum option of retaining Copyright Data and Ownership Information to be preserved. I think somehow people have begun to think of EXIF data as unsafe or invasive of privacy, but that's not the whole picture. Personally, I've found Exif data to be quite useful as I was learning how to use my camera. What camera did they use? What lens did they use? Did they photoshop the image? Where was this photo taken, it's beautiful! There are a lot of very productive uses for EXIF data.

This program would be useful if you could have some controls over WHICH data is stripped. Just a thought.

So? List the reasons. I'm a photographer too and I endorse this type of application - especially if your child posts to the web. Predators can use the meta data can be used to track and find your child.

As a photographer you don't think you should have control over the information in photos you share (or even sell) with others ?

Paul, I know you need to protect your material, but this is good for posting pictures of my children with location and personal information removed.

Everyone who takes pictures is a photographer of some sort. Some, though by no means all, are astute enough to be wary of any kind of personal and/or identifying and/or locational information attaching to pictures they might upload to the 'Net. EXIF strippers, metadata strippers, they have a place in any sensible computer user's armory. Quite why you "as a photographer" -- I'm assuming, a professional -- are opposed to it escapes me: this kind of data stripping is for self-protection. Hopefully, you're not thinking it's a tool to help others nick your pictures because in this era of browser-incorporated TinEye and Google image search, hunting down copyright breachers whether or not they've exif-stripped a picture is easier than ever . . . even if actually doing anything about it still isn't.

I think you get voted down a lot because you did not explain why. Personally I don't see the use of this program. Why would you strip your own photo's from the exif data? According to abylon's website this program is handy to put your own photo's (anonymized by this program) on social media sites. But the most common social media site (facebook) is so succesfull just because it is not anonymous: it does not matter if gps or camera data is contained in the pictures. Besides that, you won't get your personal data in the exif if you don't place it yourself (copyright), so normally there would not be much privacy sensitive data in the exif anyway. The most logical reason to use this program is to strip exif data from photo's that contain copyright information from others and put those on the internet of email them. (you are more or less invited to do so, because the program can email directly). And the program warns that this is illegal... I think there is is very limited use for this program.

I went looking for this type of program several years ago for the simple reason that the thumbnails were not updating. I would crop an image, rotate it landscape -> portrait, and the thumbnail showed it as being landscape. I found out this was because of Exif data, and spent a lot of time looking for a program that could strip out the thumbnail so Windows Explorer would show me accurate thumbnails. Not many Exif-manipulation programs do anything about the thumbnail (BatchPurifier does), and I don't think I have any graphics editors that do anything with Exif data (except one that strips a lot of info, but not all - nor the thumbnail, when I save the image).

If an older program is used that cannot retain the EXIF data who will they fine the user or the program writer?

Installed and registered without problems on a WIn 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. No clean install. Why does this programmer need so much files and registry changes for this most simple task. Terrible!

A small German company with all required legal information. No need to hide anything.

We had a previous version abylon EXIF-CLEANER 2013.2on September 7, 2013. Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/abylon-exif-cleaner-2013/

Upon start the typical window from this company opens. A little fancy screen. Facebook and Twitter social buttons are not missing, they will be asked even in the setup procedure... I didn't find an option to switch the language. So it will be in German.

You add a picture or a folder and you can use this as an EXIF or JPG information reader:
http://i.imgur.com/e5ufzac.png

Oops - it does not finish with my test picture. It is looping, maybe because of the BIG size of this picture. With "normal" sized JPG it works without problems.
Developer - test it for yourself!

I choose this picture, which you can download here, because of a new sensor, a 56 MP:
http://www.slrlounge.com/zeiss-leak-first-images-sonys-rumored-a7r-ii/

Does what it claims, problems with large files, a small usefull program.

Uninstalled via reboot, this feature is part of most other photo software.

Have a good start in the new week!

Hi Karl,
thank you for testing.

After starting the setup, a selection window is to select the software language. As a German supplier, we have German in the preselection. Here, however, can be changed to English. The software itself may not currently be changed language. Is in our view not necessary.

We have not yet tested a 56 MB file. Here it will arrive safely on the computing power and the RAM.

You wrote, “Installed and registered without problems on a WIn 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. No clean install.” So you were able to install and register this GOTD without problems, but the install wasn’t clean. ????

Also, “Does what it claims, problems with large files, a small usefull program.” Well since it does what it claims where is the claim by the developer that there are problems with large files? I am not understanding how can this be “a small usefull program” and at the same time be “terrible”? Unless what was meant was that this is a terrible small useful program. (By the way “usefull” is spelled with one “L”. There are some very good spell check programs to flag typo’s which may, inadvertently, be the cause of some of the challenges encountered while taking the time to thoughtfully and thoroughly prepare your comment. ;)

@abylonsoft: Karl said 56MP image NOT 56MB thats 56 Mega Pixel, assuming the image is a 16MB JPG file compressed approximatly 10 to 1 with uncompressed image size of around 160.61MB... the controversy surrounding image posting suggests the EXIF data had already been stripped or cleaned hense the debate over what camera it was taken with.

Nicely priced software (if you ever need to re-install) but up against both Windows -- which will strip a file of *some* identifying data, though by no means all -- as well as Digital Confidence's long established freeware version of its highly successful BatchPurifier:

Thanks GOTD and Abylon: a decent freebie for today, though for my needs I've no use for any metadata stripper that comes with a price tag.

An excellent alternative MikeR... looks like i'm going to have (2) metadata stripper to work with.
Also thanks Abylonsoft and GAOTD.

can someone explain?

Reply   |   Comment by infinity  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+26)

If I had to guess, I would say it's asking for certain file types (JPG, etc) to be associated with this program rather than whatever program currently opens them. So that when you double-clicked on a JPG file, this program would launch instead of the image viewer/editor you are used to seeing.

the problem I see here is that the software is older like 2009. What about newer operating systems that came out after 2009?

I think I'll try out this give away to see how it works!

Because we all know that a program can never be available anywhere else and not possibly be used before it makes its World Premier on GAOTD, right?

Reply   |   Comment by George  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+60)

Actually, there are quite a few freeware offerings out there that do the same thing and MORE, than this offering does. And, this is probably why there are thumbs down. It is NOT because they don't like it. It is because it may be worthless to that person and that is no reason to give a thumbs down.

A thumbs up means: YOU HAVE INSTALLED AND TRIED THE SOFTWARE AND IT WORKS FOR YOU
A thumbs down means: YOU HAVE INSTALLED AND TRIED THE SOFTWARE AND IT DOES NOT DO WHAT YOU WANTED OR EXPECTED.

If you are giving a thumbs down for any other reason, I would say YOU ARE WRONG. Some people just don't understand what the software does AND/OR because it may not be something they would use, THEN THEY SHOULD NOT VOTE EITHER WAY.
