    Automate File Info Metadata extractions in Photoshop


      I'd like to take a collection of photographs and extract the same descriptive piece of metadata from IPTC (photoshop file->file info) for each photo, create a Text layer, copy the info to it, and then save as a JPG as a means of creating titles for each photo.


      I can do this on an individual photo but have not been able to find a way to batch up this process as no "Actions" are capable of recording the events of "opening the file, file info MENU, selecting the IPTC data component, and copying & pasting the data into the Text layer.
