I have a Mac OS X. I borrowed a camera and posted some photos but neglected to see that the gps also went with the photos and there is a click on map of where they were taken. I would like to replace the photo and remove that info but converting the photo to PNG or Save for Web and other suggestions has not removed the click on map. I have PSE 8 and wondered if it was capable of stripping this info or do I need a safe stripper?
Many thanks for any help.

Thanks wilson. Even the web site gives me the option to remove EXIF and after unchecking it it still shows.
I'll post again if I find one that works in my situation.

Hi Moper. Remember I am a Mac girl. This is how my choice looks from 'Save As' in PSE8. Each time I have saved it with new names and extensions.
Can you think of another way for me? I don't want to delete the photo from the posting as it has responses attached and I will loose them. Maybe that is the only way to accomplish this. What do you think is best or quickest?

Yes you did and now that my frantic eyes have settled on that I'll get it.
I sure do appreciate your help Moper. Thanks for your patience.
I'll get it and reply with "Solved" when it is done.

Thank you Moper. I have tried that but I think that the EXIF is separate from the GPS info. I have deleted the two images I posted and will find another way to post or just make sure the GPS is turned off when I take pictures with this borrowed camera.
I also couldn't get XNView to open. I downloaded, installed and when I clicked on the icon to open the program it quicly bounced on my dock and then disappeared. I have the icon of an 'X' which I suppose came with the application so that a mac could read and use XNView. Hovering my mouse over the icon it reads X11. Don't suppose you can help with this other than tell me how to uninstall the XNView application. Is it related to the irfan view program that I used when I had a pc? It was a wonderful little one to use.

Too late to play with it now. It is gone. I deleted them. I'm going to now ask the administration from that site how to get rid of the GPS. I didn't want to post it while they were still up as I didn't want to advertise where I lived.
I did change names, file extensions, ways to save and none worked to remove the GSP info. I even unchecked the web's choice for not showing camera type and EXIF but still the GSP remained. If I get an answer from them I'll post it.

How should I go about deleting the unusable program XNVIEW?

You are a dear. Thanks.
Now to get out of my PJs. (just kidding)
Been at this long enough. I'll carry on in a bit as you have given me lots to do.
Many thanks for your time and knowledge Moper.

I don't know. I have an old version of Photoshop Elements 2. Saving for web removes all traces camera and gps info. Maybe Photoshop works different on a Mac.

The only sure way to tell would be in a viewer, that shows all the Exif data. Too bad Irfanview and Xnview are not for Mac.
Your Photoshop Elements 8 should be able to read the metadata and see what is there. In my version 2, it's under: File, FileInfo...
