How to Remove EXIF Metadata from Photos

How to remove EXIF metadata from photos.

Panasonic DMC-GH2 Photo

All photos taken with a phone camera or digital camera include the EXIF metadata for that photo. EXIF is part of the photo and is present even when you share the photo online.

This EXIF metadata or image properties, includes the make and model of your camera, camera settings for the photo and (if enabled) the GPS location of the photo e.g. see above.

If you want to view the EXIF metadata for any photo, use a tool such as FastStone Image Viewer.

And, if you want to remove EXIF metadata from a photo, use a tool such as FileMind QuickFix, which will strip out all EXIF metadata e.g. see below.
