Welcome to the tenth of 31 applications we will post (in addition to the contest participants' submissions). Make sure you add this blog to your RSS / Atom feed and check the gallery for summaries of all the apps as they are released.
JpegStripper is a simple application that removes metadata from JPEG files. This is one way to cut down on total file size without having to resort to more lossy compression. Even though the difference is only about 1% on 2MP files, it still may be the difference between overrunning your disk quota or not.
Like many of our demonstration apps, the actual work involved in doing this is trivial - it's only a matter of one call into dotImage to rewrite the file with no tags. This call, by the way, does not re-encode the image, so there is no progressive image degradation, as there is when you re-encode JPEG files.
