Just remembered whilst working on a non-railroad shot tonight that Neat Image -- at least the free version -- strips out every bit of information when saviing the "filtered" version.

Mitch, I hope your "here are one" was an intentional mocking of the grammatically incorrect "here's two."

When you strip your exif, does that also strip your copy right info (name) that should be on your photos?

I personally leave my EXIF. I've found it works as a good reference guide to determine good light at certain times of the day all year round. Other important factors like focal length, aperture, ISO, etc. occasionally come in handy as well.

I don't particularly mind if someone uses my EXIF data for their own personal benefit.

Is there a way with the XTi to even put that info on your shots? I've been manaually putting in my copyright info through Elements 7.0 on the shots I'm going to share.

Precisely, spoken like a true gentleman.

Travis - I think your correct in that the EXIF info can serve as an invisible copyright. Easy to purposely delete but most "borrowers" will not go through the effort unless the intention is to purposely steal the image.

Jim - but of course.

Joe - the full version of Neat Image will not strip the info and, once again, to beat Chris to the punch, "saving" only has one "i". : )

/Mitch

(And, Chase - you obviously meant "guide". Don't fret - I swear it's an RP thing!)
Edit - I had an extra "is" in there - further proving my secondary "RP thing" issue.

I think it is automatically added in PS or you can just write it in also.

That way they can direct multilevel marketing and spy on us.
Sorry, that is unattributed internet scuttlebutt.

Please list where you heard this.

Or is this a gag?

Dennis, there are folks out there who subscribe to the "hyper-capable government" theory. They attribute all manner of things....some of which actually happened and some of which are alleged to be happening....to "the government". Just a few of the many rants you'll find if you browse the internet include:
  • The "government" staged 911
  • The moon landings were staged in a movie lot
  • The "government" is dumping chemicals on all of us in a massive airborne spraying program
There are a ton of others. Most of the folks who espouse these conspiracy theories are people who seldom leave their houses and spend endless hours on the internet comiserating with others of a similar ilk. For the most part, they have completely taken their eye off the ball in life and are wasting their lives "catastrophizing" about bad things that will likely never happen.

Anyone who has ever had any real dealings with "the government" knows well just how capable it really is. For the most part, the only thing it is hyper-capable of.....is wasting your money and mine.

If you've never heard of some of the above conspiracy theories....congratulations! You're normal!

I can't believe no one has thought of this reason...

You tell everyone you have a $5,000 camera and in reality you shoot with a $69 point and shoot Kodak.

Not to get off the subject too much, but those 911 conspiracy theories make me madder than hell. I actually believe in some conspiracies (none listed above) and when stupid nutjobs go off on how missles were launches into the WTC and placed expolosions brought the buildings down, I want to strangle someone.

But I, too, think HG was just yucking it up.

Talking GPS in EXIF Data

Wow, I missed that one. I guess that would explain the sounds I hear at night above my house (the one I never go out of) it must be the helicopters spraying the chemicals.

And you forgot the whole extraterrestrial genre.

Hey, I got a girlfriend (she got promoted 15 years ago) and my mother didn't take me to Winterrail this year.

Although my mom went with us when we rode 3751 to San Diego in 2008.

Oh, and remember to send in your Census forms cause if you don't, the government will come to your door step and won't leave until they get that lousy form.

To my horror I learned this ten years ago. I eschew having an agent of the Federal government on my front door step (even it is the mail person).

They are out to get me, I just know it.

You forgot the part about they can put you in jail while they are wasting your money and time.

I don't know why anyone would think the GPS component of the EXIF data rumor would be true, but the response on this board shows just how little most people trust the government anymore.

Oh and hi Ken!

Actually, the folks who believe in this particular one are looking at aircraft contrails and believing them to be chemical trails....or ChemTrails. Google that one and enjoy. I shouldn't make fun. I know someone in that camp. The poor guy has lots of other problems too and rarely ever leaves the house. They should take his computer away. It just fuels his problems. Unfortunately, these folks are typically impossible to reason with. They need help, but can't admit it.

As for large scale conspiracies, my theory is that the odds of being able to maintain such a thing go down exponentially as the number of people involved increase.

More like the opposite - you tell everyone you "only" have a crappy camera but you are actually shooting with all pro gear!

Ah... Jim, I have a new word for you to use in place of "Fail" and that would be used when a thread goes awry; "Derail".

I guess those who intentionally hide the EXIF in all of their images have reasons they'd prefer kept secret.

16. The top shelf camera and 70-200 IS lens you showed all your railfan buddies on the big annual trip was returned/ebay'd when you saw received credit card statement and you are now shooting with 2 or 3 year old equipment.

If you really good and technical you could find the location and then use sun angle and The Photographer's Ephemeris to determine approximately what time of day, if you're nerdy like me.

And you know what's funny? I know someone who has quite a few photos on here taken with something along the lines of what you are talking about and when I first met this person and saw this...let's say I used every word in the book to express my disbelief, shock, and anger! Since then they've upgraded to a DSLR
