You may be able to edit the PSD files metadata in Adobe bridge and reduce its size. Or create a Photoshop script to modify document metadata. Some metadata Photoshop treats as read only. A Photoshop script can not change or delete EXIF data for example. Photoshop File Info also can edit known metadata. I do not know about private metadata like camera maker's metadata. Photoshop may blindly retain metadata it does not recognize.
Metadata in Bridge or in File Info are as empty as they can be.
Things i have tried so far:
save as - no luck
save as different file type (PSD, TIF, JPG, PDF) - no luck
dragging a layer to new file - no luck
copying a selected object to new file - no luck
You should be able to create a new document the size, resolution in color space you need. The new document will not have image meta data. You should be able to do a select all in the document that has the metadata and copy the composite view of the image into the clipboard using copy merge. Switch to the new document and do a paste. The new document will have a new image layer added and still have no image metadata. Right Click the following image and use open link in a new tab or window to be able to read it, You can scale the image to actual pixels. This Jive site scales screen captures poorly.
Please post a link to the psd file if possible.
Exiftool GUI gets rid of that.
Yes it look like something Photoshop created at one time and Photoshop wants to preserve in all copies. You need to use some none Adobe application to remove that data,
<xmp:CreatorTool>Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 (Windows)</xmp:CreatorTool>
<photoshop:ICCProfile>Dot Gain 15%</photoshop:ICCProfile>
Yes, it does. Thanks!
Anyone found out where it comes from?
I get it in lots of files lately and the only way I found of getting rid of that extra unwanted data is indeed with Exiftool.
Or through save for web.
