Free ExifCleaner (v1.7)! [24-hours only]

[1]Software Description

The following is a description of ExifCleaner, as per the developer:

ExifCleaner is handy software for removing individual Exif tags or stripping 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 photo produced with a digital camera contains it? Cleaning metainformation saves disk space and server bandwidth, reduces download times, it’s especially 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 as well as Exif metatada in photomontage works.

dotTech Advice

dotTech reviewed ExifCleaner (v1.1) [2] back in 2010. Back then I liked the program, giving it a recommendation and a final verdict of the following:

I realize that many people won’t find ExifCleaner useful – it is a niche program, after all – but for what it does, I really like it. I especially enjoy the fact that users can delete all EXIF, specific EXIF tags, or all EXIF except specific EXIF tags. I give ExifCleaner a thumbs up and recommend it to anyone that needs/wants an easy to use EXIF cleaner that supports batch processing and pinpoint EXIF tags cleaning capabilities.
