Hi
How I can clean out any exif or other hidden data from image. All cameras and all editor programs leave own visible and hidden data in the image file. Is there any software to read it and clean it? Thanks

The free program, Irfanview, can be setup to either keep or to strip the Exif data, as you prefer.

Hi
Thanks for help. With Irfanview or Exifer or PS(save for web), exif data are erased but not all data. Image without exif data still contents data such as date, program name (photoshop or sim) and some other data. Is it possible to clean all data except image (pixel) data?

I have a few programs which do not save Exif for one reason or another. Trial version of Neat Image, does this. Image Analyzer, if it can still be found. Photoimpact 10 has a 'bug', such that if the picture is loaded while the program is in color management mode, it doesn't load the Exif, and so doesn't save anything with the pic. In fact, this was the reason I first used Exifer - to restore the Exif when it was removed by other programs. Program called Sharp Control also doesn't save Exif.

You are probably right about Irfanview. As I recall, it was an earlier version which would strip it completely.
