    Yes but if I remove it from the version in general, it will affect my smart albums etc., making it a bit more complicated to maintain which files to send to the client and such.

    Thise you can remove, they are not EXIF they are either IPTC or Aperture specific

    And that makes no sense. You started this thread asking how you could remove metadata from an exported image.

    I'm glad you edited your post cause I think that 1st edition was a bit harsh

     

    Explanation: What I was after (since the beginning) was getting rid of everything (EXIF/IPTC) in my *exported* photos *except* for my name + e-mail adresse and such.

     

    Yes I can remove the stuff from within Aperture, but that will hurt my organization. I'd like to keep it in Aperture - but not in the exports.   I can select to export without any EXIF at all, that's an option. But then it won't have my name in it, for copyright etc.

     

    I understand that I might be asking for too much here. I'm not a pro and pro's use Aperture 3 so I'm guessing I just need to figure out what they're doing: "including all", or "removing all" - and than maybe take that route too (since I believe what I'm asking in this thread, doesn't seem possible).

    The goalposts have moved!

     

    To remove Keywords and Ratings, use the instructions already listed, or simply create an Export Preset which has "Include Metadata" UNchecked.

     

    Note that color labels _will_  be intact in files created.

    Hi Kirby,

     

    "Include Metadata" is checked for my export preset already

     

    As mentioned in the last post, removing keywords and ratings from the photos (versions) themselves, will hurt my organization (keywords, star ratings etc)., so that's something I would really, really like to avoid. All I'm after, is to have these things *not* included in the exports, but still keep them in Aperture for my own use.

     

    EDIT: Okay, I see that you changed it to "include metadate" UNchecked  -- yes, that would be an option. In that case, however, I will not get to keep my name and e-mail as copyright in the EXIF either, which was also what I would have liked
