Keep your metadata to yourself (7/CS/CS2)

Added on Thursday 13th of April 2006 01:11 am EST


Adobe Photoshop 7/CS/CS2

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


While keyword metadata is a helpful tool for easy search and retrieval when archiving images, there are times you simply don’t want your metadata going everywhere your image goes. Whether it’s a privacy concern or you simply don’t want to share your camera specs with others, there is a way to easily get rid of all the metadata.


To quickly remove metadata from your image:

1.   Choose Layer > Flatten Image if your image is in layers.

2.   Press [command]A ([Ctrl]A in Windows) to select the entire image.
