Our digital photos may contain important, private and hidden information in the metadata we may not be aware of. If you are on a Mac, right click on a photo in Finder, then choose Get Info to view the photo metadata. You may find some private information such as when the picture was taken, when it was modified the last time, when it was last opened, where was the photo from, which device or camera model, camera settings was used to take the photo, and so on. You can may even find GPS coordinates, the specific latitude and longitude coordinates for the location where the photo was taken.
In a related article, we explained how you can disable GPS location tagging of photos & videos on Xiaomi, Redmi phones. Today, we will demonstrate how Mac users can easily delete metadata from bulk photos using PhotoBulk image editor program. You can find more details about this bulk image editor for Mac here.
Launch PhotoBulk program on your Mac. Find the pictures in Finder. Then drag and drop the pictures from Finder to the image editor window to import them to the editor program. Click Metadata from the left pane, then click to expand the Metadata drop-down menu and select the metadata you want to delete. You can choose to delete GPS Data, Camera Info, Copyright & Contact Info or delete all metadata. See below screenshot.
Then hit the Start button at the bottom right corner, you will be prompted to select a folder to save the photos. Select a location, choose an existing folder or create a new one, then Save the new photos.
Open the output folder in Finder. Go to check and confirm the metadata of the new photos to make sure the metadata information you like to get rid off has been removed.
Delete GPS location info from photos using Preview
Preview on Mac also has the built-in tool to help us remove GPS coordinates, location info from photos on Mac. It however doesn’t allow us to batch delete meta data from multiple pictures. Instead we have to delete metadata from photos manually one by one.
