ImgClean.io: Remove metadata from photos

Almost every modern digital camera from an iPhone to a DSLR saves extra information in a picture you take. This information is called metadata. Metadata describes information about the picture itself.

When you share a picture on social media this metadata could tell much more about you than you think. Therefore it’s a good idea to remove any metadata from a photo before you post it online. That’s where ImgClean.io comes into play.

ImgClean.io is a simple web tool that strips all the metadata from a picture, so it’s safe to share on social media. The stripping of the metadata happens client-side, therefore the photo is never uploaded to a server.

I’ve created ImgClean.io as a hobby project and the source code can be found on GitHub.
