    Run them through programs which does not retain EXIF, like IrFanView or older Photoshop. Of coz, that means some quality will be lost....

    Open the image up in whatever program, then perform a small modification (anything), and save it.

    Some applications (like Thumbs+) have the option to strip EXIF (and other metadata) out.

    Download this nifty small and free command-line utility called "jhead": http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/jhead/

    One of the many things it is able to do is to strip away the EXIF header from JPEG files, and you can invoke it with wildcards and recursive directory traversal as well. Very handy.

    Open the image with Photoshop ---> Select All ---> Copy ----> File->New ---> press OK ----> Paste -----> Flatten.

    That workflow will duplicate the original image without EXIF, then you can save it. This sequence of workflow can also be saved as Photoshop Action, so that in the future you just need one click to do all of that.

    Thank you so much. That worked wonderfully well.

    jhead should do the job very quickly and efficiently. You need to run it at the command-line as follows:
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;jhead -de <filename>
    eg.
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;jhead -de myphoto.jpg

    Or, to remove EXIF data from all JPEG photos in the current directory,
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;jhead -de *.jpg
