Removing Photo metadata via shortcuts?

Hi y’all. Anyone have any good shortcut solutions for clearing out metadata on photos? I know apps like metapho can do this in app, & does have shortcuts support, but there’s no equivalent to the”remove metadata button” via shortcuts actions.

You can use the the Convert Image action and set the Preserve Metadata toggle off. Optionally, you can specify the output file format or keep it by choosing Match Input.

I’m curious why you want to do this…

I do it so images I upload to the web don’t include GPS info.

Exiftool is your friend. Invoke a shell script from shortcuts.

To remove location data:

exiftool -gps:all= filename

To get rid of all the metadata:

exiftool -exif:all= filename
