IS this all the info you plan on giving us? How can we tell you how to do it without reading your mind on what other programs you have available to you?

What other relevant info can be supplied other than file format? Logically thinking, if any software that I possessed successfully removed the data, I would not have posed the question in the first place. Exifer is the only application that I have that will remove camera exif. It apparently can not do it on a tiff file. So what I need is a recommendation on a new program that will remove the camera data. /Dan

Why do you want to remove it & what's the final use? But, if you must, a crappy work around would be to "Save For Web" the full size file & then convert back to a tiff.

Well let's see. If you had Photoshop you could open the TIFF and open a new document with the same dimensions, copy all layers from the TIFF to the new document and resave. This would Strip the EXIF. Maybe not the easiest thing in the world but it works. But then again, I don't know if you have Photoshop so maybe you will need to buy it.

Rather than wasting time posting why you shouldn't tell us what software you have maybe you could just trust us next time. It makes me wonder why I bother to try and help some people sometimes when all they want to do is answer questions as you have here. I guess it never occurred to you that there might be other ways to do tasks that you may not be aware of with things you already have.

Thanks for the reply. The final output is for publication. I have never used the save for web option in CS2, but I assume by its name inherently it either reduces the color palette to web-safe colors or in some other way negatively effects the final quality which should not be done on these files.

I have originals in PSD and I am pretty sure exifer can remove the data there. However, I made a mistake in making an assumption before processing that exifer could work on tiffs. Too many tiffs have now been produced to go back and re-process from the original raws or edited psd's. So what I need is some sort of application that will be able to take a batch of tiffs, select all, and strip exif info.

The only other tools I have at my disposal are the normal lineup such as CS2, DPP, ACR. The app does not need to be a freebie. If paying $75 will save me a few hours time, it's worth it. I have never purchased breezebrowser, but hear it is powerful. Will it accomplish the task? Thanks. /Dan

Indeed.

At least you tried, and you'll know better next time, Mike.

Try just a Save, instead of a Save As. It's been awhile, but I think that will wipe it in CS2. :)

Tim / Canonloader,

Thank you both for two very useful posts. I'll look into both suggestions.

I just tried my suggestion and it didn't work. You can go to windows explorer and right click a jpg file though, and open in Windows Photo Editor, the Windows default, then turn around and save as the same name and it's stripped. Several other programs I have will do it to, Fireworks 8 strips it clean. :lol:

Ah, found it. Open the tiff in IrfanView and do a Save, rename the image, add an a or a 1, anything will do. When you click OK, the EXIF is gone in the new tiff. ;)

BTW, IrfanView is free and you should get it, just for things like this. :)

<edit> OK, just do a Save, no need to rename it, it will strip the EXIF. :)

Thanks. Great! Another useful answer post.

I already have irfanview. Been using it since it was a v1 beta. One of the greatest little freebies on the net. I'll check it out. Thanks again. /Dan

Me too, had it installed for years and use it a lot for viewing files. I knew one of my programs would wipe the EXIF during a save. I have so many installed though, it's hard to keep track of all of them. :)

Imagine that a program you already had did what you were looking for. Maybe you should have included this info in your first post. Nah, that would have been too easy. Instead it was much more fun to respond like you did originally. :rolleyes:
