how to get rid of exif?

What is the easiest way to get rid of exif info from your photo file? and is there a simple way to add your own information instead - like author and copyright notice. what i do at the moment to do it is time consuming procedure - i have to open a photo in photoshop, create new file in same size and resolution and copy my photo to that new project. exif is no longer avaliable but i have to open file info tab and write information. can i somehow automate it? can i delete exif info without opening new project/file?

thx for any help.

Re: how to get rid of exif?

I input author and copyright etc in camera, and Lightroom has an extensive metadata facility.

This subject came up a while back

In Photoshop if you save for web it strips out the exif.

Re: how to get rid of exif?

I use Opanda Exif to modify exif data, however it won't allow you to strip out camera and lens settings.

Just out of interest why would you want to do this, I've learnt loads just by reading exif data.l

Re: how to get rid of exif?

Chris H it's a good question. generally i'm launching new website - i will let you all know when it's ready. i don't need all that rubbish information on my photos - all i need is author name and copyright notice.

but i agree with you - when i see a photo that i like first thing i do is checking exif for info what camera, F, ISO and lens details. best way to learn. my wife is loughing at me when i say i would like to see the exif for a photo printed in some magazine.

Re: how to get rid of exif?

If you want to get rid of it, just launch Photoshop, open your picture, press CTRL+A (select all), CTRL+C (copy), CTRL+N (new file), CTRL+V (Paste], flatten your image and save. The resulting image won't have the original information.
