Hiding camera properties on a JPEG file

Discussion in 'Photography' started by an inconvenient woman, May 24, 2006.

  1. I'm sharing some of my jpeg photos and do not necessarily want people
    to be able to view when they were taken, which is possible in MS Office
    Picture Manager (not sure about other viewers). Is there any way to
    suppress or hide the camera properties information that includes date
    taken? Thanks!

    Saving in a graphics program that doesn't support EXIF data might do the
    trick. In Photoshop, "save for web" strips all of that data.

    You can use IRFANVIEW software (shareware - just google it) which lets you
    strip EXIF data, JPG comments, and IPTC data from the file. Really easy to
    use and heaps of features. Damn good for shareware, I use it heaps.

  4. Just a funny idea: How about taking a screenshot of the image and saving it
    again?

    I second this. I forgot about IRFANVIEW - I used to used it before Katrina
    took away all of my stuff. It's a good little program, and a good price.

    for people that use thumbsplus, just check the "remove exif data" when
    you save the file(s)

    Your image resolution would then be limited to the screen resolution, unless
    you want to do it in full size patches and then stitch them all together
    accurately. Too tedious.
    Didn't someone somewhere in the murky past of computer development intend
    for computers to alleviate us from tedious tasks? Nah, probably not, if
    creating a slideshow with Powerpoint is anything to go by.
