Automate/macro to copy one IPTC field to another?
« on: April 17, 2016, 07:56:53 AM »
I have lots of images with the CAPTION field filled. Is there some way I could automatically copy this field into the TITLE field?

I've never used macros but if given an example I think I could work with it.

This would save me lots of work if possible.

Many thanks for any input.

You don't need a macro, you can do this with the stationary pad. Make sure the stationary pad is empty before you begin and then at the field for the title, use the {variable} for the field you want to enter there. Then apply the stationary to any of the files you like to set the title for in this way.

Hope this helps,
Hayo

P.S. Make sure you test this on a couple of sample images first.
