    Can the EXIF data in a JPEG be nulled out? In others words, I want to
    send an image to an aquaintance, but not enable them to see any
    properties of the image, except the image itself.

    I believe some image editors will delete the EXIF data, either always or
    by option.

    This is true, Irfanview, for one, will offer the option but -- wouldn't
    this constitute a re-save, rather than a nulling of the EXIF data?

    Of course -- but it would be a solution to the problem -- produce a copy
    to send sans EXIF data. I'm not sure what "nulling" would mean, other
    than setting it all to zero.

    Yes, Irfanview can produce a copy without EXIF data, recompressing
    the image.

    But that might be okay too, if the person receiving the image doesn't
    need the highest quality.
