Remove metadata from JPGs with jhead #

Strip potentially revealing EXIF data (camera model, GPS coordinates, etc) with jhead (mentioned recently):

jhead -purejpg file.jpg

Batch processing works to:

jhead -purejpg /path/to/pics/*.jpg

EXIF metadata can be displayed by simply pointing jhead to a file or folder, e.g.,

jhead /path/to/pics/*.jpg
