I have a file called imageforstock.jpg I would like to make this name attributed to a title or description in the IPTC without annoying ctrl + c, ctrl + v. It is a program that allows for group assignment?

There is a command line program called exiftool that will let you read and write IPTC and EXIF data.  It's not the simplest thing in the world, and I use it more for extracting data or making sure it's present than I do to change the data, but that's one of its capabilities.  As an example, here is how I take a stock image and use exiftool to find the filename of the original RAW file:

Code: [Select]
exiftool -RawFileName 47018.jpg
Raw File Name                   : DSC_7844.NEF

exiftool is a command line wrapper for a set of code written in Perl.  It's free, but I'd recommend you find someone with command line experience to help you with it.

Infranview is a small, free program that lets you batch edit IPTC data (title, description, keywords, batch rename....).
I'm not sure that's what you are looking for but you could have a look at it.

There is also this, a gui for Exiftool.

It will batch edit files, but you'll have to look at it to see if it'll do what you specifically want.


Irfanview as mentioned is only free for non commercial use.
It's right at the top here

you can do the CMD+c and CMD +V using a software called keyboard maestro for mac.

You can automate the copy / paste process several times.
