Tutorial: How to Remove Location Info from Your Images in Photoshop

Privacy is a big concern these days, what with the NSA looking over both your shoulders, reading your emails and chiming in on your cell phone conversations. And while you might not be able to “fight the man” as it were, you can protect your privacy a bit by learning how to remove sensitive location information from the photos you post online.

This short tutorial by Photoshop Principal Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes will show you how to do just that; and since it was only a week ago that one of our commenters poked fun at one of our guest authors for leaving GPS data intact for his photos taken at the Sochi Winter Olympics, we have a feeling many of you will find this useful.

You can check out the video tutorial to see exactly how this is done, but the process they’re suggesting is so simple we’ve outlined it in just the few steps below:

  1. Open up the image in Photoshop. If you’re viewing it in Lightroom a simple Command+E (Ctrl+E for Windows users) will do this.
  2. Click File –> Save for Web
  3. Click Save, and name the file whatever you please

And that’s it, saving the file for web is all that’s required to scrub the data out of there. To see more quick and easy tutorials on everything from Selective Focus, to Black and White Conversion, to Creating Panoramas, head over to the Photoshop Playbook YouTube playlist by clicking here.
