How do I edit the EXIF data on my pictures on MAC?

On PC it was easy, properties and then edit and apply but on my mac I can not seem to change the EXIF data and for some weird reason I can not even see copyright info. Before I upload my pictures here I would like to replace my name with Captain Obvious / George W. Bush as I like my anonymity.

Download and install ExifTool

ExifTool by Phil Harvey

In a Terminal window %exiftool -artist='Captain Obvious' -copyright='Captain Obvious' /path/to/photo.

To automatically enter the path just drag and drop the file on the terminal window.

Another solution is to use Flickr. Set your account prefs to not allow access to your original image file. Files resized by Flickr remove most of the exif tags including Artist and Copyright. You can also choose to hide all exif data.
