I added Keywords to many jpg files when I should have added them to their scanned source files (tifs). Is there an efficient way to copy them from the jpg versions to their tif “originals?” Except for their suffixes, they are identically named.
I do not understand which keyword icon you refer to. I should have mentioned that I am using Bridge 3 (OSX). Each of my jpg files has many keywords attached to it, and my goal is to copy them to identically-named tif files.
Sorry I was assuming you were using Organizer. I don’t do key wording in Bridge but I’m sure you could select a whole batch and add the words in the metadata panel, to apply them to all selected images.
Thanks, but I don’t think I’m explaining the problem clearly. Say I have ten jpgs made from ten tifs. The only difference in their names is the suffix. I can copy all the keywords assigned to any one jpg to its tif version (or to any any other image file) just as you advised. I can easily repeat the procedure nine times. But I have about nine thousand jpg files, each with its own set of keywords, plus a tif source file for each jpg with no keywords. Is there a way to automate this? Is there a way to tell the jpgs to transfer their metadata to other files with the same names (minus prefix)?
