Easily Delete Meta Information From Image File

Usually people won’t care the information stored on the photos taken by them when sharing it on the internet. The personal information or meta data on a photo contains date and time, camera settings, thumbnail, geotag, details of editing software and other hidden details.

In addition, a thumbnail of the image often exist in the JPEG file, and many image manipulation software fail to update this thumbnail when the original image is modified. Therefore, even if the image was cropped, or otherwise modified to hide certain parts in it, the removed parts may still be visible in the thumbnail.

So, if you don’t want to disclose these data, you can easily remove them with suitable applications. There are several tools to remove meta data from JPEG file (I had mentioned many of them in the previous posts), BatchPurifier Lite is an easy to use tool that can remove meta data from image file in batch.


BatchPurifier Lite is a free tool and very easy to use.

1. After installation, run it and drag and drop files or select an image folder.

2. Select next option and choose which data you want to remove (or select all) and click next option.


3. Choose a directory to save the image or choose ‘Overwrite original file’ option and click ‘Finish’ button.

BatchPurifier Lite is quite useful, if you need to make sure that no meta information is saved within the picture files. You can download it from developer’s website from this link.
