You have a number of pictures stored in a series of folders. Some of the images have a lot of metadata associated with them, others do not. You are planning to share some of the pictures with friends, but because the images are extremely large, you need to resize them to a size that is suitable for email. You would like to be able to remove all metadata from files that you want to share. You decide to create a script that will show a graphical interface displaying a picture on one side and the metadata associated with the picture on the other side. The graphical interface should also contain a button that is named something like Prepare to share. When clicked, this button will resize the image, remove all of the metadata associated with the file, and save the new file under a new name that prepends the word SHARE and an underscore in this fashion: SHARE_originalfilename.
