How to remove metadata

Post by cowboymug » Sat Jul 27, 2019 7:23 am

In the tutorial I'm given, there is an option edit - metadata - remove all metadata.

Whereas when I use it, I can't see metadata under edit.

Screenshots of both included.

The top screenshot shows XnView MP, the lower screenshot XnView Classic...

I don't use metadata myself, but possibly that option is in a different location or hasn't been added to 'MP yet?

Does anyone know how to remove metadata on MP?

Maybe IPTC/XMP is metadata?

I'm pretty sure it is, so seems to be just a different interface...

You should be able to confirm with a simple test, but:

**Always test with copies of files!** :wink:
