Metadata

Is there a way I can put my info (author) in metadata on all my photos without doing each photo individually?

What version of PSE do you have (and Mac or Windows) ?

I have Windows/Elements 3.0.

When I saw this Thread, I thought it looked interesting and decided to give it a try. I can save metadata for a photo and apply the saved template to another photo so I do not have to do the retyping, but I cannot get batch applying the same metadata.

I have heard that Elements 4.0 Mac has Bridge...wonder if batch metadating works there. I seen reports that it works in CS and CS2. I am looking forward to the replies.

In Bridge (for CS2, that is), you simply select you images, then enter the IPTC or Metadata you want and Bridge will want you to confirm whether to apply this information to all your images.

PSE4 will allow you to put a watermark on a batch of photos but won't make it easy for you to put copyright data into the EXIF/IPTC information. You can add a caption to multiple files as well, but that won't equate to the IPTC/EXIF copyright field.

As a matter of fact the watermark/caption you can add with this tool actually appears on the photo, which is not what I think you wanted to do.

I believe you will need a second program to accomplish what you are trying to accomplish.

Sorry for the late reply. Here's one example of a program that does so...

I've not tried this program, but it does say it allows batch update of IPTC data.

On Nikon DSLR's you can edit a field and input it there.
