Hello detroit123,

Unfortunately, even when the Export settings for Metadata are as shown below some data (including Program Name) will still be shown in Properties.





With individual (or a small number of) photos, data can be removed by clicking "Remove Properties and Personal Information". All data can be removed or selected data.



For bulk removal (large numbers of photos) the are plenty of freely available apps that can do that.

So, I'm afraid the answer to your original question is "No" undecided

Hello again,

I am no expert (not even a novice) on these things, having never used an EXIF editor to remove data from batch files.

I have used EXIF Tool & EXIF Pilot before, but not for the above purpose.

EXIF tool can batch process tags, can certainly remove all/selected meta data, but I'm not sure if that can be batch processed too. The free EXIF Pilot cannot batch process, as I understand it.

The best thing to do is to try a few well reviewed tools & see which suits your purposes.
