Photoshop: Default Custom Metadata?

Looked through the documentation a bit, then decided someone here would likely know the answer.

Is there a way to have PS add copyright (and other) metadata to my files without manually doing it?

Thanks,

Yes - I was thinking that too. Its not quite automatic though. Have you determined there is no automatic way?

You could use an action/script in combination with the "File"-"Scripting"-"Script Events Manager" (the correct event would probably be "Save file"), that should work :-).

Hi Shift, in Bridge, you can use Tools>Create Metadata Template then shift click to to select as many files as you want and then Tools> Append Metadata Tepmlate or you can use the created template to completely replace the entire metadata, which may be useful if you want to strip info out of existing metadata.
Regards, Murray

Hey I knew I came to the right place!

@Der_W - I've almost got this working as you recommended.
@mistermonday - good advice. Der_W's solution works good for me as its a more automated approach.

Thanks you guys.

Der_W your method is close, but it forces me to save everything twice. I guess the event runs the action after the save
Oh well I'll debug it somehow.

I didn't think about this ;-).
But probably you could as well run the script/action when a new document is created or opened, that should also work and you don't need to save twice (hopefully :-)).
