"Clean Metadata" to Batch convert

Post by Dreamer »

Suggestion - add option "Clean Metadata" (from menu) to Batch convert - Transformations:

[x] Optimize (Huffman table)

Remove
[ ] Comment
[ ] EXIF
[x] EXIF thumbnail
[ ] IPTC
[ ] All others 'APP' makers

It's a useful feature but a bit hidden - several images can be selected and this option can be used, but most users don't know about it probably.

Since it already exists, it should be easy to implement IMO.

I support. And Nconvert also. It already has "-rmeta" switch, but it is not lossless.

Definitely, IMO...

Useful feature is useless when it's hidden.
