My quarrel isn't with Exif data. It's the data that comes up in Details (after right-clicking picture, and clicking on Remove Properties and Personal Information) AFTER the Exif data.

 

It's this

 

File-------------------------------------

 

Folder Path:   C:\User\Shirley\MyPictures etc.

Owner: SHIRLEYTEMPLE

Computer: SHIRLEYTEMPLE/DELL

 

How can I remove this before uploading. Same with other files, like WORD. I know it's possible, I have seen scrubbed files. Just don't know how they did it.

I am not positive but that data is not Exif and therefore does not get transferred on an upload. 

 

Edit: It seems I made the wrong assumption. The data does transfer.

 

Edit Edit: I believe I came to the above conclusion because I saved the file back to my own computer. See this page.

I know if you save the file as PNG, it'll remove all EXIF data.  Then you an open/view that PNG, and save that to JPG (different name from original).

Again, it's not about Exif data, but thanks anyway.
