Removing the date from the page seen by viewers

I notice that when people view my images on DT they are told the date the image was taken. I have also seen that many other people don't have this data on the page seen by viewers (it normally appears underneath the image description).

I am assuming that this is coming from the EXIF data attached to the file and wanted to know what the easiest way to either remove it in photoshop or to not have it shown on the DT summary as it easily dates images.

I have tried the 'export for web/design' but Photoshop tells me that my files are too large for that option and was hoping someone here would know the answer.

Thanks in advance.

It depends on whether or not that info is in the image file when upoaded AND whether or not the image was uploaded before the site started pulling this information.

Yes, why wouldn't you want this information known?

I can see where Mark is coming from.

Buyers might perceive "new" images to be preferable to "old" images, even if there is relatively little difference in the content between the two.

As Melonstobe says, it 'dates' the image and may affect users perception. I was also interested in how people manipulate EXIF data so that you can choose what appears on DT.

I'd be surprised if it affects their perception much. They can pretty much assume by price that an image has been for sale for a while. If you have an old image with no sales they probably had to work pretty hard to find it :). If anything, my older files sell better!

(Perfectly valid question though, and one I've wondered about)

After post processing, I always copy my images to a new photoshop document (not for this reason, but because I don't want to risk saving the TIFF as a JPEG) and the EXIF does not "travel" with it. So, all my images are free of any data!

If I was a buyer, I would like to see the exif data of an image. ISO value, camera model etc means a lot to me, especially about the post process of an image. On the other hand, I understand your point. You can use a exif modifier, there are lots of free softwares :) good luck

If you already have PS and want to remove all the EXIF data, this is what you can do.

1.) On the final photo, Select All (Ctrl-A).
2.) Copy (Ctrl-C) or (Edit > Copy).
3.) Open/Create a New Document to the same dimension or larger (don't for get the same resolution).
4.) Paste the Copy image to the New Document.
5.) Go to the File Info (Alt-Shift-Ctrl-I) and check your EXIF data. It should now all be blank. (File > File Info...)

Hope this helps.

Aren't new and old images distinguished by upload date? In that case it doesn't matter if the exif is there or not. Actually you want the exif to be there for Copyright purposes.
