Most files contain metadata which is information characterising the content of the file. For example:

  • Cameras record data about when and where a picture was taken and what camera was used.
  • Office documents automatically add author and company information to texts and spreadsheets.

You can use the MAT to clean the metadata from your files before publishing them.
