Photoshop - Automate extraction of XIF info into Photoshop

I need to automate the process of extracting meta data from an XIF file and paste into a PSD file....

1) For each PSD file in a folder do the following

2) Extract the AUTHOR/PHOTOGRAPHER name field (not sure the exact name of the field)

3) Open the PSD file. Paste the date into the lower right corner.

4) Save the file


- Probably should post the data on a new layer so that it can be edited later if need be

- The files save should probably be to a new file, like just adding the word "photographer" to the existing name

- Cannot assume the PSD file is already open in Photoshop (unless this is the only way to make it work. This must be a batch process either way.

- The question is where exactly to paste the field. I am open to any possibility where you can code it to allow intervention by the user. Short of that I will give you a specific measurement as to where to paste the field.

I am guessing at the cost. Feel free to bid outside that silly estimator they make us use.

That's it! Thanx for bidding. Jim

Correction. Number 2 should read: "Extract the AUTHOR/PHOTOGRAPHER name field from the accompanying XIF file

Correction: "XIF" should read "EXIF"
