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

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
