Batch Windows Utility to Remove Exif Tags from Digital Photos
 
Hi fellows photographers!

I'm here to tell you about my program.

ExifCleaner is a batch Windows utility that lets you to selectively
remove Exif tags from JPEG photos.

You may want to delete Exif:
* Before publishing photos on the Internet - if do not want to expose
your personal information (coordinates from a build-in GPS receiver,
data/time taken, etc).
* When you have edited the photo, keep in mind that almost all image
editors do not update an Exif thumbnail which is inside a JPEG file
(even Adobe Photoshop does not do that!). So, it is good idea to remove
the Exif thumbnail only in that case.
* When you do photomontage and combine several pictures into one.
* If you want to save some space of result files, and thus to save
server bandwidth.
* If you sell your works on photostocks, but your equipment is not
recommended by editors - it's a good thought to delete/hide
camera-related tags only.

On the contrary, it's a bad idea to remove Exif in the following cases:
* To violate someone's copyright and authors' rights.
* If you want to share some technical details of a snap with your
colleagues, or with curious site visitors, it is a good idea to leave
Exif metadata intact.

You can see some showcases at:

Why would someone want to pay for software
to do what can be done with freeware?

Here's a couple freebies that work great!
Jpg Cleaner - http://jpg-cleaner.en.softonic.com/download
JStrip - http://davidcrowell.com/jstrip/

These tools do not allow to accurately (selectively) remove Exif. Also,
they do not have the metadata previewing feature.
