    How can I modify the EXIF info to remove...

    "Image Description OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA"

    That is in every shot?

    Does LR allow changes to the EXIF? I couldn't find it.

    I use a little command line tool called jhead (Exif Jpeg header manipulation tool) to manipulate dates in EXIF data. I don't know if it can modify the camera information, but you can check out the link and find out.

    Thanks for the link, thats a cool little tool.

    @Linkedit this will do what you want, but as there is no GUI (graphical user interface) you have to do this bit manually, these instructions are only valid if you are using a PC.

    download the windows executable and put in in your c:\windows\system32 folder
    (this makes it easily accessable to your computer)

    then create a text document and rename it
    Code:
    stripexif.bat
    then copy and paste this following text into it
    Code:
    jhead -purejpg *.jpg
    (you have just created a batch file, that will execute the application "jhead" with the instruction "purejpg"; on every file ending .jpg in the folder that stripexif.bat is located in)

    Now whenever you want to stip the exif info out, just copy stripexif.bat into a folder that contains ONLY the jpgs you want to modify and double click on it.

    I wouldn't recommend putting it in \system32. That's a bit messy. Instead, update your system PATH variable.
