Installation and Uninstallation Instructions

BatchPurifier LITE™ is a free tool for Windows® to quickly and thoroughly remove hidden metadata from JPEG picture files in batch.

BatchPurifier LITE™ is the freeware edition of BatchPurifier™. (which supports 28 file types , including Microsoft Office® Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, LibreOffice®, and PDF)

BatchPurifier LITE™ is able to thoroughly remove all possible JPEG hidden data & metadata, unlike the integral metadata remover of Windows 11 that leaves behind in the file a wealth of potentially privacy-compromising metadata. (see comparison table)

BatchPurifier LITE™ supports the removal of the following metadata types:

Screenshot of BatchPurifier LITE
  • Exif data (including thumbnail & geotag)
  • IPTC data
  • XMP data
  • JPEG comments
  • Other hidden data

This metadata often contains information such as the exact date and time the photograph was taken, the digital camera manufacturer, model, and unique serial number, the camera settings, and the location (if GPS-enabled camera or mobile phone was used).

Furthermore, a thumbnail of the image often exist in the JPEG file, and many image manipulation software fail to update this thumbnail when the original image is modified. So even if the image was cropped, or otherwise modified to hide certain parts in it, the removed parts may still be visible in the thumbnail, that can be extracted and viewed using a special program.

With BatchPurifier LITE™ you can prevent the unintentional exposure of this information that may compromise your privacy and cause you embarrassment.

BatchPurifier LITE™ keeps the JPEG image intact and does not degrade its quality.
