    Pretty sure it does if you select "no meta data" and just save it as a JPG. Curious if photoshop is leaving any sort of fingerprint if I use it across different accounts.

    Anyway, thought I would ask if anyone knew since I'm not very technical. However, for those that have Photoshop and this works, you can set up a batch process to resave all your pics in a folder automatically that I think removes all the data, can rename them, or even do a slight resize if you want.

    Yes, Photoshop does this. As well as Paint.

    Don't use Paint for your graphics though.
    Otherwise, yes "save for web" gets rid of all unnecessary metadata in your images, provided you select "none" from the metadata dropdown.
