This script strips all EXIF and Metadata from a file, and is suitable for batch processing.

Copy to the Photoshop\Presets\Scripts folder, open Photoshop and use File>Automate>Scripts >StripExif or File>Scripts>StripExif. Record as part of an Action, and use File>Automate >Batch to batch process. It cannot be used if the file has layers.

Fantastic - thank you! I wish I could email a n, because my batch action works perfectly on multiple images. Possibly they have a toggle on or didn't put a save & close in their action.

it is great for a single image. For me no matter what I did it would not work as part of an action for batch processing 1200 images, it kept popping the preference window for each image. thanks anyways
