BatchPurifier 5.0.2
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.

The program misses an opportunity in its final report, which has none of the details you need. We were expecting to see the number of bytes saved, perhaps the elements stripped from each file, but all we got was a simple list of the "files successfully purified".

BatchPurifier LITE performs its core task well, though, quickly removing your chosen metadata. And if you'd like to remove metadata from other file types then the full version seems reasonable priced at $19 for a lifetime licence.

Verdict:

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

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
