Allow removing EXIF information when Saving As

Post by postcd » Sun Aug 26, 2018 5:36 pm

Hello,

for privacy reasons, i would like there be either by default disabled or an option in Settings not to save EXIF information with images. On export dialog there is a tickbox, but not on "Save As".

Thank you.

I found something confusing:
When i have that option disabled (not to keep EXIF), edit original image from camery that have exif and crop image and then Save As a .jpg image then in Microsoft Windows 10 Properties / Detailed i do not see camera name and such EXIF details. Good, but when i open that resulting .jpg image in XNView MP, go to Edit / Options (have czech language unsure if named this way) / Exif tab, then i see Exif information like camera type, etc. In IrfanVIew image viewer, EXIF is not available. Isn't strange XNVIewMP continue to show EXIF for the resulting image? i have v. 0.90
