any plugin that helps remove EXIF data
#1
Yes I know there are other standalone freeware that will remove EXIF data quickly 
but I will work intensively with GIMP so I want to save up the effort of starting
another application. 

Are there any GIMP plugins that will remove EXIF data completely?

This is an option when you export the JPEG (that you can make a default), is the removal incomplete?

I am not going to "export"

I have a large number of Jpeg files that are with EXIF data (especially GPS location)
that I want to remove them in a bulk way within GIMP.

Yes I know I can do it with other third party program but it's not that inconvenient

Gimp is a picture editor, not a photo manager.

To remove the Exif with Gimp you have to load them with Gimp, and reexport them as JPEG. Or you use File>Properties and import EXIF from an empty/dummy file to overwrite existing data. How is that more convenient than even running ExifTool tor remove just the GPS data, or remove everything but a few useful tags? See for example https://superuser.com/questions/450838/e...ags#450853

Nothing that suits the OP's requirements.

I was thinking more of something like shellout script and jhead -mkexif
see:http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/jhead/
Writes a tiny 'vanilla' exif header effectivly removes everything. Unfortunately that still needs a file that has already been saved, so might as well run jhead -mkexif *.jpg on a folder full of images.

Using XnView. Again works on saved files, as many as selected. Only advantage - it is GUI
