I need an image viewer or a daemon or anything for Linux that automatically removes metadata from any image downloaded or opened.

Does such a thing exist?

Might be worth considering rewording this. As it stands it seems to me at risk of closure for being deemed off topic. – pnuts Jun 11 '13 at 23:32
if by metadata you mean EXIF tags and by any image you mean an image in the format which supports EXIF tags - would work for you? – Alex P. Jun 11 '13 at 23:37

You can use ImageMagick. The command line convert has a -strip flag that removes "profiles and comments". See more here
