"Assuming you are using Windows, if you rename exiftool(-k).exe to exiftool(-overwrite_original -all=).exe you can simply drag and drop your photos onto the EXE and it will automatically strip all of the metadata from the image(s)."

Powerful. Supports all the file formats I can think of. With the new functionality of changing the date and time for renaming it is almost perfect

WOW! this is the only tool I found that lets you edit about ALL the meta data in numerous file types. Even ISO, Aperture, Focal Length, … which are not supported other tools, even quite expensive ones like Lightroom.
