    Why would I use this?

    +Jason ON to strip info out of an image before posting on the web if you wished to not display that information…. As in more for normal users that wish not to have stalkers showing up at their front door with GPS coordinates their phone placed on it without them even knowing…

    Ah… I don't enable GPS location on my images. As for the rest, I like the EXIF data for ownership purposes.

    +Jason ON I post this in part for the models I know that might see this…or for photographers that like to tag there information like I did in this example. With a name of the model. Many do not understand that the models first, last or both names is actually private data that should be respected even in Metadata as that data is easily seen.

    Good point. I rarely work with models (I need to) and therefore haven't thought of this.

    +Brent Burzycki Thank you for the thumbnail tip and thank you for pulling back the veil from more technical issues.  I think your posts are quiet beneficial to the G+ users.  Bridge not able to generate or handle images on a memory card in a camera attached with USB still is amazing to me.  What the … ??

    I use Jeffrey Friedl's excellent Metadata Wrangler plugin for Lightroom to strip out metadata during export.
