Removing EXIF data from the channel's input files

Removing EXIF data from input files

How to remove EXIF data from the input files to avoid distributing files with GPS data and other potentially sensitive information.

In Color Factory Settings, expand the relevant channel and select Metadata

Open the General tab.

Select Metadata Filters and choose Remove EXIF Information from metadata.

Use this feature if you want Color Factory to strip all sensitive EXIF metadata from the files so it won't be available in the output files.

This removes GPS data, Camera and model name, and other potentially sensitive information. The output file will still have an EXIF block that contains non-sensitive EXIF data such as orientation tags, and so on.
