Locating and removing copyright data in EXIF
« on: May 25, 2017, 05:41:40 PM »
I have a bit of quandary and need help in fixing asap please. I was handling the backend of collecting, editing photos from several different photographers for a prom dance. When I uploaded to Photoshelter it shows my copyright information in the EXIF area. However I don't recall populating that field and possibly it is somewhere as a default that I cannot find to correct in Photo Mechanic.

PM doesn't edit EXIF data like that.  You could use something like ExifTool to strip it if you want.  Or you could mask out all of the EXIF data in PM (but you'll lose all EXIF data):
