Quick tip: removing gps location from iphone photos

It’s an easy thing to forget, but photos taken on most iphones have the location of that photo embeded within the jpeg.  This is useful when it comes to navigating your library and finding photos based on location, but its a bit of a privacy issue for anyone doing a lot of online publishing.

After reading a bunch of articles on the subject recommedning 3rd party software, I found this great tip from the Sweet Setup.


  1. Open the photo in the Preview app (its the default on MacOS)
  2. Open the inspector (click apple “i”)
  3. Click on the “i” tab
  4. Then click “Remove Location Info”
  5. Then Save the file
