Hi, i recently read a Malwarebytes article on steganography, and I'm wondering if there is any program out there that can scan a collection of images for any imperfections such as steganography or unwanted metadata, and remove them?
I like to collect images from some of my favorite celebrities, and over time I've developed quite the collection. Occasionally I will scan for duplicates using Visipics to free up space. Some of the dupes i come across look so identical to each other in dimension, appearance and filetype, with the exception of the filesize. I keep the files with the largest filesize, and remove the rest. I keep the bigger ones because although i can't tell a difference in appearance, i assume the 723KB version has to be better than the 356KB version.. somehow.
If i could remove any potential 'dead weight', this could free me a considerable amount of hard disk space, including my Dropbox. I don't know how often steganography is used on the internet, so i have no idea how big of an impact it might actually have. Please help.
