Image template: Strip profiles command

Learn how to enhance your images using the strip profiles command in this article on image processing commands.

The "strip profiles" command is typically used in the context of digital images and refers to the process of removing any metadata profiles or comments embedded within the image file. This can include information such as camera settings, GPS coordinates, date and time of capture, copyright information, and other metadata that may be stored within the image file.

By using the "strip profiles" command, all of this metadata is removed from the image file, leaving only the visual content of the image itself. This can be useful in certain contexts, such as when sharing images online or when submitting images for publication, where it may be important to protect privacy or maintain confidentiality.

IMPORTANT: It's important to note that the "strip profiles" command will remove all metadata from the image file, not just profiles. This means that information such as EXIF data and ICC color profiles may also be removed, which can affect the appearance and color accuracy of the image.
