Photo Privacy

Most modern cameras and smart phones store extra information in your pictures. They save your camera make, model, how the picture was taken, and if your camera or smartphone has a GPS module, the coordinates where it was taken. You might be sharing your home address when you upload your pictures.
"Photo Privacy" is an EXIF Metadata removal tool for your Mac which you can use to remove all the private information from your photos.
Mac OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard Required



Removes EXIF, GPS & IPTC

"Photo Privacy" removes metadata (EXIF, IPTC), GPS Location and thumbnails from your pictures. It creates a private copy of your pictures, which you can use to upload to your favorite social network or image hosting service, being sure that no private data is stored in the image.

Multiple Formats Support

"Photo Privacy" can create private pictures from multiple image files: RAW, JPEG, PNG, GIF and TIFF.
RAW support is readonly. RAW files are converted to JPEG files to create the private picture.
