    Well, for stripping off the meta-data I use Photoshop's "Export to Web and Devices" as a part of compressing the file size (with little or no discernible damage to the image) it tosses out the metadata too.

    The problem I have is finding something that can add metadata to my film scans.

    I use Exifer v2.1.5 – It has not been updated in years, but it is free and will not only display, but will allow removal and/or editing of the metadata. There are Win/MAC and Nix flavors available.

    So I just ran an image through a reader from an iphone..

    So when you put that in google maps it comes up to a dirt lot in China.. and the photo was taken just miles from me in California…..

    That seems strange…

    Anyone else read an iPhone's exif data when GPS and location services are off?

    I believe Lightroom will let you remove metadata. I have couple images I need to get off the camera and I can try it with that in a few minutes to test it. 🙂

    +Brent Burzycki Ok the photo I just uploaded I unchecked the metadata info when exporting from lightroom to jpg and nothing showed up when checking the information on the photo.

    +Brent Burzycki Can't help with the metadata, but this may answer the puzzle on the location being in China. West longitude is entered as a negative (-122 for example) If you google 37 122, you get a map of China, but if you google 37 -122 you get a map of Santa Cruz. The metadata has a field that labels it east or west instead of using a + or – numeric value.
