JPEG & PNG Stripper 1.5.7.70
Quickly strip metadata from JPGs and PNGs

JPEG & PNG Stripper is a tiny portable tool which strips the metadata - tags, thumbnails, whatever it might be - from JPG and PNG images. This can be an easy way to reduce file size (if only by a few bytes) without affecting image quality.

The program is built for speed and ease of use. Launch JPEG & PNG Stripper and its tiny window will by default appear above everything else. Drag and drop your images onto the program and any metadata will immediately be removed, while a report explains how much space you've saved (if any). And that's it.

One limitation of this approach is that you can't see the tags any images contain, so you've no idea what you're deleting.

It's also a pity that JPEG & PNG Stripper can't save separate copies of its processed files, and instead always overwrites the originals (unless you check the "Preview Only" box, anyway). If you're concerned with this then be sure to always work with copies of your source images.

The program has an "Add to Explorer" checkbox, which we expected to add a right-click Explorer menu for JPEGs and PNGs. That would have been a good idea, except, well, it didn't work.

JPEG & PNG Stripper also has a command line interface, though, and that's more successful. Point the program at a folder and you can have it process any images it contains in just a few seconds.

Verdict:

JPEG & PNG Stripper is fast and very easy to use. It will only save a few bytes on most images, though - if that - and always overwrites your original files, so always work with copies until you're sure it's doing what you need.

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.
