I had never heard of LeadTools.
Most of my image formatting is done with Gimp. I have come to prefer it to Creative Suite, because of the Adobe software bloat. And all the browser hijackings that it installs. Hate that.
I do my image batch processing with ImageMagick. Wonderful program, very powerful and very fast. Command line.
I have not opened this image to look at the image data. I have the tools but did not bother.
You can easily remove the image data trail from .jpg format images. I use jhead.exe to remove most of that on my images.
The main image file that I maintain is for 37,000 items. That takes a while to batch process, even with command line tools. The original conversion for our website took way into the night to finish.
LEADTOOLS is ancient Windows image manipulation software.
