Remove metadata and thumbnails from your photos.

Overview

Photo Privacy removes metadata (GPS, EXIF, IPTC) and thumbnails from your photos.

Most modern cameras and smart phones store extra information in the pictures you take. They can save your camera make, model, how the picture was taken, the date and time, and if your camera or smartphone has a GPS module, the coordinates where it was taken. You may be sharing your home address when you upload your barbecue pictures. Some models may even store a small copy of the original image inside the file. If your editing software does not remove this small image, even if you modify it, anyone could see the original picture stored inside.

If you like sharing your pictures, and privacy is a concern for you, "Photo Privacy" can help you by removing all that information 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.

Features:

  • Supports RAW, JPEG, PNG, GIF and TIFF image files (RAW support is readonly. RAW files are converted to JPEG files)
  • Removes metadata (GPS, EXIF, IPTC) and thumbnails from your pictures.
  • Safe: A new image is created without any private information, keeping your original pictures unmodified.
  • Easy to use interface. Two easy steps to get your private pictures.

Great idea, but we need a non-App Store version and one that runs on OS 10.5. Too many shooters out there with multiple systems.

PILE OF CRAP that CRASHES 95% of the time! Customer service doesn't ever answer emails nor do they seem to exist! This company deserves 0 Stars!

Want to update my initial review. Though I still have had no reply from the developer of any kind - or even acknowledgement that my attempts at communication were received, here or via email - Photo Privacy inexplicably did begin working for me. It appears to function as advertised now, though the problems I described previously persisted initially over more than one logout and reboot. I'm giving PP three stars now because it appears to be working -- which is the whole point, after all. But I'm just as unsure why it STARTED working suddenly with no explanation as I was that it DIDN'T work initially. And the lack of response from the developer says: he'd like your money, but either can't or isn't interested in supporting this product. So: if it works for you, great! But I'd say: buyer beware.

Wow, what a pile of junk. I wrote the following (below line) several days ago. I also wrote directly to the company. No reply to either. So I'm reposting my comments which were originally under the "troubleshooting" app and intended as an attempt to communicate with the developer here under the review section. I usually try to reach out to a dev if an app isn't working for me as I expect it to (or as described...but when I get no response at all after some time, I have to assume the dev is either incompetent or simply does not care, once (s)he has gotten your money. Money which, of course, in this instance (because it's a MAS purchase) is unrecoverable. Just abysmal customer service. Here's my original attempt to communicate with this developer: ------------------ Wow, totally useless! I just paid my $3.99, as I've been trying to do this (removal of identifying information before posting) manually, knowing that the camera reveals far more than one might want it to, especially if one has small children. So far, I've tried to open a photo with the app three times. All three times, PP will import the photo, but clicking on "Start" causes it to crash. Every. Single. Time. As it stands now, I'd call that a complete waste of four bucks. Very disappointed.
