Talking about videos and GPS data/stats, it can get pretty heavy once you start using the app a lot. This means eating up a lot of memory.

The past couple of days I have written a couple articles about how to view iPhone image GPS data on a Mac using Photoshop and Preview. Each of these articles included a mini warning at the bottom of the article noting that you should keep the GPS data in mind when uploading images to social media sites, sharing the images, etc. So I figured I should write a quick article showing a method you could use to remove this GPS data before sharing the images either on social media sites, via email, etc.
Below there are details of an easy way to remove GPS details from images on Mac OSX. Why Should You Care About iPhone Image GPS Data? The simple explanation for me is privacy.
Some social media sites offer a bit of privacy regarding sharing images that you upload however others do not. Also you have to understand the security settings offered by sites such as Facebook to be able to configure them properly where people you are not familiar with will not be able to view your images. Think about the fact of uploading Christmas pictures that might include opening presents at your own house Christmas morning as well as images of Christmas dinner at your parents house on Christmas evening. If the GPS data is included with these images and you don’t have the security settings configured properly on the social media sites you have decided to upload too then anyone in the world could obtain your home address and your parents home address in a under a minute. That is simply one example in an entire list of examples that would make it easy for anyone in the world to basically track your every movement using the GPS data in images you post online including the location where you work, where you workout, or even the other places you visit on a regular basis which when thinking about this in depth actually can be fairly scary to think how easy someone could know the details of every place you have ever been. What Can I Do To Hide My iPhone Image GPS Data: Below are two different options for combating the issue of location data within images.
The first is turning off the iPhone Camera location data. You can do this very easily however this may not be convenient for people that actually prefer that images include the location data so there is also a second method that provides an easy way to remove the GPS data from specific images.
If you were to use the second option you could only remove GPS data from photos that you share on social media sites for instance.

Then other people such as myself prefer that the location data be included as I may take an image where I need to know the longitude and latitude at a later date so I keep the location data for iPhone images enabled since I am not to worried about people knowing the places that I visit as when I am in Louisville I pretty much don’t leave a 4 block radius anyhow. To disable the location data for images taken with your iPhone camera use the below steps.
