I attach a zip file with before and after examples. Each initial file has a different author in the metadata field known as Authors to Opus and Windows (or Creator to Lightroom, or Author in Photoshop). I would like a way to copy the author in each file to a second metadata field in each file. This field is known as Description to Opus/Windows/PS or Caption in LR.
So the first file ends up with "Joe Bloggs" in the author and description fields, the second one has "Jane Bloggs" and so on.
[As an aside, I notice that the field known as "Subject" in Opus and Windows is not accessed by the Adobe products and if a file with an entry in that field is imported to Lightroom and re-exported, that field entry is stripped.]
I am very grateful for any help received, but am happy to go and learn a bit of scripting as long as you are sure that is the way to go.
