Hi @bme72,

I'm not sure that Dropbox have such tools internally. If You don't have editing tools, a fast workaround could be using an image viewer and with "Save As..." make temporary copy using different format (for example if You have jpg, save it as png) and if need, then revert format back. This usually lead to additional metadata dropping. winking face Try at least...
