How do you hide your technical info? I am interested in doing so.

I'm not sure how he does it but if you're comfortable on the command line you can do it with exiftool. It's the Swiss Army Knife for modifying media file metadata.

One somewhat blunt way to do it would be to remove all the metadata, e.g.

exiftool -all= path/to/photo.jpg

If you want to retain some of the tags, such as all the dates, copyright, and artist tags this would do the trick

exiftool -all= -tagsFromFile @ -AllDates -Copyright -Artist path/to/photo.jpg

There are probably simpler tools out there but this is my goto when I need to modify metadata since you can throw pretty much anything at it.

Much appreciated.

I edit my photos in photoshop using camera raw (basically the same thing as Lightroom, just part of photoshop) and when I export it I loose the technical details.

I do too, but for some reason it still shows. Hmmm.

One thing it could be is how you're exporting. I go to File>Export>Export As JPG. It might still save the details if you use save as. If that's not it I'm not sure why it's doing that.
