So I just found John Beardworth's script for setting the filename to the metadata in Bridge through some of my fellow D65 graduates. It is the script located under "Bridge" on the bottom right of the page at this link - http://www.beardsworth.co.uk/iview.php
I downloaded the file.
I removed the .txt extension.
I installed the .jsx file into the proper folder in Bridge. All went well so far.
I decided to test the script out in Bridge on a folder holding three images. So I highlighted all three images and clicked on "tools." Under "batch rename" there was an option called "filename to metadata" with a flyout arrow. I opened the flyout menu and have tried all six options, but none of them do anything at all.
The three trial files were .TIFs from my 1Ds so I decided to try it on a folder with 6 jpegs. Still nothing.
What am I doing wrong?
Also does this script work in photoshop CS2? What about PS 7.0? Any primers on how to load the scripts into these versions of PS and to then make them work?
This looks to be a great feature that I really want to incorporate into my workflow.
