BatchPurifier
Remove metadata from JPEGs and more

BatchPurifier is a straightforward tool which removes hidden metadata from your files. The full commercial version works with 24 file types (Office, PDFs, image, music and video), but the LITE build is strictly JPEG-only.

The program gives you a fair amount of control over what's removed. For JPEGs, the options are EXIF (including thumbnail and geotag); Photoshop image resources (including IPTC); XMP; Comments; ICC Profile; Adobe App14 tag;JFIF header; "Other Hidden Data". There are basic descriptions of each data type to help you decide, and you can select some or all of them with a click.

Once you've decided what you want to do, click Next, choose your output folder and click Finish. BatchPurifier then rewrites each file, stripping out your chosen metadata, usually in just a few seconds.

BatchPurifier can also remove metadata from JPEGs in ZIP archives, without you having to extract the images first.

The program's GUI is quick and easy to use, but if you prefer, it can also be run from the Explorer right-click menu, or from your own scripts via its command line interface.

Verdict:

A quick and easy way to strip tags, thumbnails and other hidden data from your JPEGs

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
