Purge Metadata from a .PSD on mac?

New Here ,
Dec 22, 2022 Dec 22, 2022

Copied

I've been given a PSD and every new Intelligent layer I create in this document adds/duplicates 72Mb of metadata to the file. I've opened File Information and in the XMP metadata window (non-formatted data) it says the metadata is to big to display (otherwise I would try to delete it here). I know I can export as JPG or PNG and remove it that way, but it's not practical for the work I'm doing.
Is there any uncomplicated to remove the metadata on a mac? Thanks
