Removing EXIF in Photoshop

Good morning! πŸ™‚

Have you ever tried to remove EXIF information from the files in Photoshop? When you take photos, your camera automatically saves all the technical information about the photo – this is EXIF. To access EXIF in Photoshop, you can go to Β File -> File Info, then Camera Data category in the dialog box that opens:

File Info in PhotoshopThis displays all the information registered by the camera including aperture settings, shutter speed and even whether flash was used or not.

What if you want to remove the EXIF? The information in Camera Data category is not editable. Here is the trick:

Go to Save for Web and Devices, File -> Save for Web & Devices:

On the right side of the screen, under Convert to sRGB, go to the submenu: Metadata and choose what you want to include with your file. To remove EXIF, just choose Copyright or None.

I hope this helps. πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful day!

  1. In Photoshop:
    1. Select the entire image. Copy this into memory.
    2. Create a new blank document.
    3. Paste the clipboard contents into the new document.
    4. Flatten the image.

    That’s it. All the EXIF/XMP is gone.
