No photo data saved when saving graphics

Post by Bosrmak »

Good morning, I have one more question. Is it possible to make the program not save additional data when saving graphics?

I usually have a large graphic and then scale it down to a smaller one. It often happens that I don't need this descriptive information about the photo - is it possible to turn off the options somewhere so that it won't be saved?

There is often an automatic addition of some stamps and strange elements in the title and description sections of the photo - when, for example, I download them from free graphics. I don't need it, can I disable the options so that it doesn't transfer this information after overwriting?

Hello,
See :
Tools > Setings > General Formats > Read/Write
Select the Write tab , select the format you are ususally using (JPEG ? )
Unmark Iptc, Xmp and perhaps Exif checkboxes at the bottom of this tab.

But be careful: Exif information is often useful for other tasks, such as editing your family photos without deleting dates.
Remember to turn this option back on for other uses.

Thank you, I will try it soon. When I have new graphics, hopefully I won't have to fill the description and title fields with some strange data.

This caused me a lot of problems because I didn't always notice that these elements were filled in the photo gallery.

Best regards and thank you again.
