Organize, edit and share photos and videos online, safely. Pixelgarde lets you view, add, remove or change geotags, dates, time of day, titles, authors and more for better content management. You can add blur to photos for additional privacy, add text, or add drawings to photos. It’s a fast, easy and free!

If you get stuck, or have questions, you can always reach us at support@pixelgarde.com. We like helping and appreciate all feedback.

Pixelgarde is ad supported, so it’s free. The free version has limits, but can be upgraded in-app for $1.99 to remove them. For example, we show advertisements and add a small "X" to the bottom right border when you share photos and videos. The watermark is a useful way to identify content that’s safe to share and prevent piracy if you’re a photographer. Upgrading removes ads and lets you control the watermark.

Our users include photographers, enthusiasts and privacy conscious people who share photos online. For example, photographers use Pixelgarde to remove camera data from photos when they share, while adding author, website and watermarks to prevent unlicensed use by others. Our applications are also popular with enthusiasts, like hunters, fisherman and others, who use Pixelgarde to share ‘catch of the day’ photos while keeping the location private. But, our most noble purpose is keeping families safe online. A growing number of privacy conscious people use Pixelgarde to remove personal data, like geotags, from the photos and videos they share online; especially photos of children, or taken in the home.

PLEASE NOTE: If you see this message: “Reminder: Please make sure location services for Pixelgarde is turned on before you begin.” make sure LOCATION SERVICES is “ON” and PHOTO ALBUM ACCESS (iOS 6 only) is “ON”.

LOCATION SERVICES: Pixelgarde uses location services because our camera can geotag photos and videos. Even if you don’t use the camera, it’s part of the app, so we need your permission when you run it for the first time. iOS 6 users can turn off location services for Pixelgarde once it's installed using these steps: run pixelgarde > iphone settings > privacy > location services > pixelgarde > off. For earlier iOS versions, you must keep location services turned on to use Pixelgarde.

PHOTO ALBUM ACCESS (iOS 6 Only): Pixelgarde needs your approval to access your photos and videos. You can set access rights on or off for applications in iPhone settings by following these steps: settings > privacy > photos. If the Pixelgarde app won't start, make sure this setting is turned on.

COMPATABILITY: Pixelgarde is designed to run on all iPhone models, even iPhone 3 running iOS 4.1 and up. We also support iPad 2.

Super easy to use

On vacation and we have some photos taken from a camera with no location or date tags. Downloaded this app, paid $2.99 for the Pro upgrade, and was able to correctly tag all those photos in less than 60 seconds. Allows you to type an address and update multiple photos at once. Highly recommend this.

Please choke on your latte

Your app is confusing, not intuitive, there is no batch function or it’s broken or we can’t randomly find it, and you are so lazy you did not include a user guide. Your about/info page is a transparent overlay on our photo library thumbnails with grayed out white letters that are 90 percent illegible, and only visible if our photo under it is a solid wallpaper. Is this your so called user guide? Why is it transparent? Nothing else on our phone is. Help opens the your email address. No, we are not going to waste our time emailing back and forth with a developer who cannot even make legibly opaque pages. It would have been far less hassle for us to flush our $3 down our toilet instead of flushing it into your wallet. Have a latte on us.

Someone who just wasted money ,

I never write reviews either.

In fact, this is the first review I've ever bothered writing on an app in my entire life. I figured it was worth writing considering the app hasn't done a single thing it's promised to do. Keep in mind that I did make the $1.99 purchase by the way... That being said, why is the watermark still secretly hiding in the bottom right hand corner of my photos when they save? Despite my purchase could they really not stand to leave their name off my picture? Also, would love to know why my videos are only saving as black rectangles in my album too. I mean, I heard this app was a little glitchy and to be careful but I didn't think it couldn't do a single thing right...
