    I'm working with Mac.
    What's the easiest way to batch strip? I don't have heaps of software and don't do much work with photos.
  2. Google is you're friend op.
    The software is very easy to use,on pc anyway.
    One other tip is to turn off the gps jpeg stamp,if you are using a Droid/iPhone to take pics.

    If anybody wants to do this the UNIX way, they should grab libjpeg, which should come with a command line tool called jpegtran.

    This tool performs lossless transformations on jpeg images (i.e. the image data is not decoded then re-encoded, which can introduce unnecessary noise in the output).

    To batch convert, stick all the jpegs in a single folder (e.g. jpeg_folder) and type:

    $ cd jpeg_folder
    $ for f in *.jpg; do jpegtran -copy none $f -outfile clean_$f ; done

    Not good idea, cause if you want to delete exif data from 10 000 000 images, how do you do that?

    Better to do it on your pc
