    What's the best way to save a photo in JPEG format so that the EXIF date
    isn't present?

    I'd say by using some cheap program (freeware) which doesn't know how to sav
    EXIF

    Isn't there a way of doing this within Photoshop?

    Some EXIF editors can delete the data or you delete the data. Many
    editors have a save for web which will remove the EXIF and IPTC data.

    Sure. "Select all" + "Copy" + "File/New" + "Paste" produces a copy of
    the oriinal jpeg without the EXIF data - or without any EXIF data that
    Photoshop itself can read, anyway.

    Yes. "Save for Web" in PS strips all EXIF data from JPGs.

    Use "Save for web" instead of "Save".

    Or strip it off using something like jpegtran.

    Free (postcardware) will losslessly remove exif from a jpg without touching
    the actual image.

    Save for Web will solve your Exif dilema, but make sure it suits your colour
    management purposes (it probably won't be a problem, but I thought I'd
    better mention it!)

    Good Luck.

    If you use "Save As..." the Exif information will be kept. If you use
    "Save As For Web" all Exif info is knocked out.

    It has an option to retain the colour profile while still
    removing the other metadata, so it works whatever space
    you're using.

    Default is to not embed a profile, so sRGB is assumed.

    Irfanview 'Save as" options include whether to keep or discard
    the EXIF data.
