You may know that most smartphones and new digital cameras have the ability to embed location, also referred to as GeoTag, along with numerous other image attributes into your picture as EXIF metadata. Although metadata of pictures taken by camera or smartphone gives you a detailed information, including exact GPS location where the photo was taken, name, XResolution, YResolution, ISO, YCbCrPositioning, and date and time stamp, it’s generally advised to remove such metadata from pictures before sharing them with others.

Since anyone can easily read the embedded information and exploit it in various way, you may not want want to share images with complete metadata on online social media networks and image sharing platforms, like, Picasa, Flickr, etc. Pixelgarde, pronounced as Pixel Guard, is an application which not only removes image metadata but also optimizes it for online sharing. The application supports direct uploading to Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Photobucket, and Picasa. You can also choose to share pictures via email too.

Unlike other apps, such as GeoTag Security, JPEG & PNG Stripper, and Image MetaData Stripper which attempt to remove metadata of images in one go, Pixelgarde lets you select the type of information you wish to delete from the photo. An option to delete all file attributes of selected pictures is also available. By giving you an option to select the information that is to be deleted, the app gives you more control over the photos.
