EXIF Purge is utility that removes EXIF meta data from multiple images at once.
With the click of a button you can remove the camera, location and other technical information from a batch of photos which is embedded by the camera or the photo editing software.
When you take a photo with a camera or your phone, it contains a lot of information about the photo like the date and time the picture was taken, camera model, aperture, focal length, lens used, orientation, shooting mode, flash firing status and also the location data if the shooting device had GPS. All this data is called EXIF metadata. You don't always have to share this data when you upload the photo online or share it with your friends. You can strip the EXIF data from images with one click using EXIF Purge.
Doesnt do anything.
It did something...
I tested this app and it needs some major improvements. If you want to view the metadata of a pic install homebrew on your mac and do a brew install exiftool. Then exiftool -list image.jpg and you will see all the metadata. I did this and then ran this purge software. I listed everything again and it did purge a few things but added MORE!! Rediculous. If you have followed these instructions, do a exiftool -all= image.jpg to really purge your metadata from your pic. Additionally, you can set up a script and remove ALL metadata from ALL pictures on your entire computer with the cli too. Also, check out fotoforensics.com for a prettier (web based) look at your metadata.
Not sure what all of these other reviewers did, but it worked great for me. Stripped my exif data in about 5 seconds from 20 photos. OSX 10.11.6
