JPEG & PNG Stripper v1.5.7.70

webfork on 19 Apr 2014

JPEG & PNG Stripper is a drag-and-drop metadata stripper/cleaner for one or more JPG/JPEG, JFIF and PNG files, saving disk space and protecting privacy. Metadata carries a variety of information about the camera or device used to take the picture, date it was taken, and other data primarily important for photographers. Because metadata increasingly carries more and more information about the pre-cropped original photo and on where the picture was taken (geo-location), metadata can represent a privacy risk. Deleting metadata usually saves between 1 and 10% of the overall file size.

The program includes a "preview only" feature to show how much space image metadata is taking up.

Metadata in images is just the same as tags in audio files. They are used to store useful information (OK some of the information is not not that useful to most of us like what camera took the pic). Would be better if this program gave you a list of common metadata and let you tick those you didn't want it to remove.

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) v0.5.2 Updated

Checker on 4 Aug 2014

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) presents a before-and-after image compression view that allows you to reduce file size of an image into JPG, PNG, or GIF format. Includes optional metadata removal, batch operations, compression to a target file size, transparency options, and other common editing functions (flip, rotate, zoom, pan). Notable versus similar software in the ability to gradually reduce the available colors one-by-one (7, 8, 9, 10...), not just milestones of 16, 32, 64, etc.

The program is also available as a plugin for XnView, GIMP, or Irfanview (see website).

Functional in Linux using Wine. An old, unsupported version is available for earlier versions of Windows.

@Checker The zip download is for 0.5.0; it appears 0.4.6 is only available as installer
