Batch: Stripping EXIF metadata + Preserving of the original date
I would like to remove almost all of the Privacy Evading data that a digital camera is generating, such as EXIF DATA.
EXIF DATA: Camera Brand, Camera Model, Date taken, Exposure Time, Flash Fired, Focal Length, Location (if you are using iPhone with categorization by location, if enabled), Metering Mode, etc.
May you, please, write a script which does that job for multiple files?
Exiv2 seem to reduce more weight than Jhead so I'll use the command exiv2.
That's, generally, what I want the script to do:
If I understand you correctly, you want to remove all exif info from the file while preserving the original date of the file; and you have figured out a way to do that for one file and want to batch process all the files using a script.
Assuming that your directory contains only files that you want to touch-up, this can be a way batch process them for the commands you have listed.
have a look here
why the output of ls should not be parsed and why $() is preferred over `backticks`.
So based on someshpr's solution some minor modifications:
Thank you all for your, absolutely, important help!
It is exactly what I wanted.
And, of course, it is touching files without EXIF metadata within them, but it really does not matter (who cares, as long as the original modification date is the same, right?!). ;P
For the record: If you are reading this post and want to improve it to make it to work with GUI dialog box (Python or Zenity etc.) you might want to clone the following application (Windows)
