    Remove photo (.jpeg) tags in Windows 7

    I am not sure that this is the right forum for this question and would not mind if it was moved to another forum.

    Anyway, I have a folder of .jpeg's that somehow, inadvertently, had tags applied that have nothing to do with the photos. I feel that there must be a way to remove the incorrect tags from these 75 jpeg's but I have been unable to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Open properties of each picture. go to 'Details' tab where you can click on the Tag name and delete it or rename it. If you have lots of pictures this will take a lot of time.

    Picassa can batch edit tags. Click on the show/hide tags panel icon at the bottom right. Select all the photos you want to have a common tag, type the new tag (or space if you no longer want a tab) and you're done.

    Clive-
    Thanks for the post! I have already tried that and for some reason nothing happens when I click on "Tag"- most peculiar!

    Thanks for your post. Batch editing is exactly what I want to do. I downloaded and installed Picasa and did as you suggested. The tag no longer appears in the Tag panel but still shows in the jpeg itself. Do you have any idea what am I doing wrong?

    The "tag" I am referring to in the photo still shows after editing with a space (specifically) as "johnbd2012 002.jpeg" rather than simply "002.jpeg"

    The only thing I can think of is that the tag is unique to a specific photo editing package. Does the tag show up in Windows explorer when you click on properties for a picture file and then click on the details tab? What program did you use to insert the tags?

    I downloaded the pics from my SD card using a Kodak 4-in-1 card reader using the default "Import Pictures" option when the card was inserted . Unfortunately, I did not see in this process that the tag in question was in place rather than a blank (no tag). I am not sure what program this entails but the default program for viewing the pics in Windows Photo and Fax Viewer. And, yes, the tag shows up in Windows Explorer properties details but when I click on the tag section nothing happens other than it is highlighted.

    "johnbd2012002.jpeg" is a file name. If you are wanting to change the file name, right-click and select "Rename".

    You need to click on the Tag name not the label 'Tag'.
