Quickly Remove GPS and Exif Data From Photos With FileMind QuickFix

If you are going to publish your personal photos or other photos taken by you on internet or send to others via email, you need to make sure that, you do not expose your personal information to strangers, because your photos may have your personal details – location, date, time, camera, details of editing app, etc.
Depending on your camera, your photo contains GPS data (location information), Exif data (picture taking date, time, camera type etc.), as well as Iptc and XMP tags (names, addresses, copyright, location details etc.). Photos may also contain an embedded visual preview of the uncropped original.

If you do not want to disclose all those data, you can easily remove such data saved within the picture files with a free tool called FileMend QuickFix meta data scrubber. It strips all your personal information and GPS location data from all your photos, with just a single mouse click.

It is quite simple to use. After installation, just drag and drop your files in the application and click Quick Fix Metadata. FileMind QuickFix can safely scrub thousands of JPEG files in just minutes.

If you want, you can set it to automatically make backup copies of the original files, from the option menu. FileMind QuickFix can be downloaded free at developer’s website. (similar tool for removing meta data from images)
