How to delete EXIF data from your photos with Exiv2

Logo Exiv2
Quick note: I needed to delete all EXIF data from some photos. After a very basic research, I found an easy and powerful tool: exiv2.

How to install (Linux Mint - Debian package):
sudo apt-get install exiv2

How to delete EXIF data from all JPG files in current directory:
exiv2 rm *.JPG

Again, pretty simple. But quick and effective.
