How to remove GPS information from photos on macOS or iOS

1 Share

Sometimes it can be handy to see where a picture was taken by looking at the location metadata, but there are many other times that you might not the entire internet to know where you took a particular photo. Maybe you have kids and you don’t want social media knowing exactly where they are. Maybe you have an item you want to sell, and you don’t want to provide potential thieves with the exact location of the item you are selling. Maybe you’re on vacation and you don’t want to be broadcasting to the entire world that you’re not at home.

You don’t have to wear a tin foil hat to understand the benefit of removing GPS info from your photos. In this workflow post, we’ll show you how to remove this metadata from your photos on both your Mac and iOS devices.

Removing GPS data on macOS with Preview

Removing GPS data on your Mac is simple to do with the built-in Preview app. First, open the photo for which you want to remove the GPS info by double-clicking it (it will open in Preview, assuming you haven’t changed the default app for opening image files on your Mac).

Once the image is open, click ToolsShow Inspector (you can also hit Command + I). From here, select the “i” icon to reveal the info panel and select the GPS tab (this will only show up if GPS info is applied to the photo). Click Remove Location Data (below the map) to remove the GPS data from the photo.

You’re done! Save the changes to your photo and you can now share your photo without sharing the GPS info.

Remove GPS data on iOS using Koredoko

You can also remove GPS info from photos on your iOS device, but you’ll need a third-party app in order to do so. There are a couple of options available, but here’s how to do it with the free app Koredoko.

Once you have the app installed, launch it and allow it to access your photos. You’ll see a popup with an option to enable the extension now, which you’ll need to do in order to remove geotag info from your photos.

Next, tap the list icon in the lower left-hand corner and find the photo for which you want to remove GPS info.

Once you find the photo you want, tap the blue “i” to access the metadata.

From here, tap the Share Sheet icon in the upper right corner, and then select the Share without Metadata option.

From here, you can share the photo in several ways, including saving it to your camera roll. All of them will provide you with a copy of your photo with the metadata (including the GPS location) removed.

BONUS: Keeping GPS metadata off your phone in the first place

If you want to be 100% sure that this data is removed by making sure that photos taken on your iPhone don’t have GPS info captured in the first place, you can do so by going to Settings → Privacy → Location Services → Camera → Never. Keep in mind that doing this will eliminate the ability to make albums based on location. Also, this setting only applies to the default Camera app; if you use a third-party camera app, it will still be allowed to tag your location in your photos unless you alter that setting as well.

The Bee Explains: What Is The Prosperity Gospel?

1 Share

Though you undoubtedly follow The Babylon Bee‘s unparalleled coverage of the “prosperity gospel” (sometimes called the “health and wealth gospel,” “gospel of success,” “Word of Faith movement,” “name it and claim it theology,” or simply “using the name of Jesus to get incredibly rich”), maybe you’ve found yourself wanting to know more about this intriguing worldview and […]

If that doesn't fix it, git.txt contains the phone number of a friend of mine who understands git. Just wait through a few minutes of 'It's really pretty simple, just think of branches as...' and eventually you'll learn the commands that will fix everything.

Git is really easy, once everything clicks. I'm waiting for it anytime now.

For us crusty old geezers still clinging to Subversion, this translates to "something didn't work, so 'svn update' and try again, and if that doesn't work, save it somewhere else and download a fresh copy" ... it's like the cirrrrrrcle ... the circle of source control
