Weekend Widget: Stripfile

March 21, 2009

Did you know that files you post on the Web often have extra information in them? As an example, JPG files taken with a digital camera often carry EXIF data. This tells you more about the file, but only serves to add a little extra to the size of a file you place on the Web. Color profiles can also be embedded in the file. This could enlarge the file by quite a bit. That’s where Stripfile comes into play.

Point Stripfile at a single file or even a whole folder of files and it will remove any information not needed. The “stripped” files are saved in a separate folder so that you still have the originals if needed. Best of all, it is completely free!
