I have some images I want to post online which I am touching up with OSX preview app to resize them. I however dont want my compiuter information such as my name, IP address, location or anything to be attached to the images as I really value my privacy. Ive heard that Photoshop sometimes does attach your computer name to the images, so I want to avoid that.

Anyone know?



Yes softwares link photoshop do attach a lot of EXIF metadata to files.

You might check it using tools like exiftool (not provided by default, you can install it with MacPort).

Your only solution since almost every software adds some exif data is to using tools to delete these data.

Jhead is another tool that allows you to change or delete the exif.
