New from John Beardsworth, a plug-in that lets you copy the metadata from one file to another one of the same name (From a JPEG to a NEF for instance). John’s hard at work on Lightroom Plug-ins, which is good for people who want to use the program and need extensions to the file or metadata handling capabilities.
From his blog:
My latest plug-in Syncomatic is uploaded and available. Syncomatic is not a plug-in everyone will need but is designed for circumstances where you need to copy the metadata between two groups of files and can use the filenames to match up pairs of images. So imagine you have lots of raw files with metadata, and TIFs of JPEGs whose metadata should match the raw files from which they were created. Syncomatic simply runs through the two groups of pictures and makes the metadata of 1234.jpg the same as 1234.raw, makes 6789.jpg match 6789.raw…..
