Editors' Review


BatchPurifier Lite removes metadata from JPEG images without affecting their quality. Such data can include thumbnails, geotags, Photoshop resources, EXIF data, and even the make and model of the camera that captured the image. Removing some or all of the metadata from your images helps reduce their size on the disk, but it can also help protect your privacy, especially if you like to share pictures online. BatchPurifier Lite can also remove metadata from compressed images. This freeware version of a premium tool is fully functional but limited to JPEG images only.

BatchPurifier Lite's wizard-based interface starts with the Files Selection stage, which involves adding files or folders to the main window using buttons or dragging and dropping them into the main window. Check boxes let us include subfolders and ZIP files. We clicked Next to advance to the Filters Selection. The freeware only filters for JPEGs, but it offers plenty of metadata options for cleaning, including EXIF, Photoshop, and XMP data, ICC Profiles, and Other Hidden Data. We clicked Select All and then moved on to the Output Options, which involve selecting an output directory and whether to overwrite the original files. Clicking Finish purged our batch of images of all the selected data in a quick process. When the job was done, we browsed to both the original and cleaned folders and opened their properties sheets to view the total size of each. Cleaning the metadata had saved less than a megabyte, but our batch was small, and it still represented many JPEGs in capacity.

It's not uncommon for people to end up with lots of images saved to their PCs. If all you care about is the pictures and not the metadata, then running BatchPurifier Lite makes perfect sense. If you like to post your own digital snapshots online, you probably want to keep the metadata for yourself and strip it out of the pictures you share. BatchPurifier Lite makes that extremely easy to do: Just add your image folders, choose the metadata you want to remove, select a new or different folder for the cleaned images, and press Finish.

"Works as advertised."

* Batch operations (not limited to a photo-by-photo removal of personal info, such as GPS, comments, etc.).
* Can include subdirectories and ZIP files.
* Allows limited selection of data to be removed (EXIF, comments, etc.), but ALL of it will be removed in what is selected, whether personal or not.
* Does everything you need if all you want to do is remove any possible personal data from JPG formatted photos.


* Would be nice to selectively choose which EXIF info to be removed (e.g., GPS info only). The program removes everything, but that's fine when I'm uploading to public places where the non-personal data (such as exposure, f-stop and other camera settings) anyway.
* Works only of JPG (paid version works on PNG, etc.). But since almost every camera in use saves it's photos in JPG format, that's all that I need.


Given the limitations of the free edition (which is all I need -- I can hand edit EXIF notations myself, but wanted a way to do it in batch mode for photos being uploaded where I don't want geolocation information included), it worked great. I tested a small number of photos and when examining the EXIF (& other possibly personal) data afterwards, all had been removed.
