ImgClean.io: Remove metadata from photos

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.

Hello there! So, why this blog?

Hello there! So, why this blog?

As a student and part-time software developer, I often have questions and come along obstacles. This blog will mostly just be a place for me to share my thoughts and solutions to problems. In addition, I want to use this blog to write about things I like and care about, like retro games and movies but also privacy and technology.

I probably won’t write posts on a regular basis, because I do not want it to feel like an obligation.

That’s it for now, have a good one!
