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.

    "BEST FREE tag remover"

    March 31, 2010   |   By cybergaar

    Version: Digital Confidence BatchPurifier Lite 2.1

    Pros

    Removed EXIF information (tags) from over 18,000 photos in multiple directories in about 10 minutes. Similar non-free software would crash.

    Cons

    For those who want a fancy interface, you won't find it here. Program is straight to the point

    Summary

    Simple interface, add files or individual folders. Option to scan sub-folder or even zip files. Select whether to remove EXIF including embeded thumbnail, IPTC data, XMP, Comments, and orther Metadata. Then you even have the option to overwrite the origional files, or Save as new files and a folder of your choosing. For a totally free program, it very small, and is extremely efficient. Don't be fooled by the name Batch Purifier LITE. I highly recommend this software to anyone wanting to just clean up their image tags and/or protect their privacy when uploading pictures to the web.
