How to Remove Location Data From Photos Using Preview

Most of the photos I take for this website are done with my DSLR, but sometimes I end up posting photos taken with my iPhone. Those images include geolocation data, which is not something I want to share with the world.

I used to use Photoshop for removing this information, but thankfully, Preview on macOS makes it easy to get rid of this information.1

Open an image, then choose Show Inspector from the Tools menu.

On the second tab, there will be a GPS section. Simply click the Remove Location Info button on this pane and save the image again. All geolocation data will be removed, keeping the location of your top-secret bunker safe and sound from the Internet.


  1. To be honest, I have no idea when this was added.
