Before uploading a JPG picture to a public website, I want to remove any metadata that could help identify me. The only things I want left are:

  • Latitude/Longitude where the picture was taken
  • Date/Time when the picture was taken
  • Image orientation
  • The image itself, of course

All of the rest should be deleted. In particular:

  • Camera serial number
  • Camera manufacturer/model/resolution/software/serial number
  • Camera settings such flash/ISO/shutter/focal/quality
  • File name should be randomized

Further requirements:

  • The original file should not be overwritten.
  • Ideally I should be able to immediately "share" the picture to another app.
  • Open source.

What I tried:

  • ObscuraCam: Unfortunately deletes the GPS latitude/longitude.
  • Not sure if any of those fits (I don't do photo editing on Android myself), but it might be worth checking with my little list of Android Exif editors ;)

  • @Izzy: The nearest in your list would be EZ UnEXIF Free, which unfortunately removes latitude/longitude and is not open source.

  • I was afraid of something like that. Nothing to do about open-sourcing it; for the other part, maybe the dev is willing to add a feature. Apart from that, I'm out of ideas.
