"Clean metadata" adds metadata

Post by Peter2 »

I have TIF with EXIF, and tried to clean the metadata:

Code: Select all

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> 
- <XnView_script version="1.0" name="exif_del">
  <Clean_metadata flags="2" /> 
- <Output folder="D:/1234" filename="" case="0" format="TIFF">
  <Options overwrite="0" orgDate="false" keepMeta="false" keepICC="false" keepFolder="false" delOrg="false" multipage="false" allPages="true" openExplorer="false" /> 
  <TIFF compress="2" compressBW="6" oneStrip="false" /> 
  </Output>
  </XnView_script>
This works semi-fine, because the original EXIFs are removed and "Software: LIBFORMAT ..." is added.
How to remove it all?

The software is not really a EXIF information, stored in TIFF header not EXIF header...

But the "Properties" in XnView displays it in the EXIF-Tab.
Correct?
