I have hundreds of photos and I need to apply some meta tags to ALL of them (e.g. Author, subject, etc.)

Obviously, I don't want to go into photoshop and do them one at a time.

What's the best way to apply meta tags to all the photos?

Thanks,
Mike

Since you have Photoshop you should also have Adobe Bridge.

In Adobe Bridge you can select multiple pictures, select MetaData on the top of the window, add your data in and accept when it asks you if you want to add it to all.

It may also say that some meta cannot be changed but hopefully not.

Ut oh, I forgot to say I only have photoshop elements :-(

I'm looking for a cheap or free solution for bulk tagging.

Sorry,

You can do this with Microsoft Pro Photo Tools.

The MS Pro photo tools sounds perfect.  However, when I went to download it, it was vintage 2008, (pre-windows 7 era), and wanted me to run window genuine advantage.  Though I'm running a completely legit copy, because it's soo old, and who knows what might happen if I run it on my win7 64 bit system, I'm concerned.  

Any other apps that do the same thing?


Sorry to be such a pain,
Mike

I'm running it on Win7 - x64 with no problems. If you have a legal copy of Windows, you'll have no problem downloading & installing... Windows genuine advantage is to assure this.

When software doesn't run on your version of Windows, it usually won't even install.

Batch Edit Editor has a free version and a pro version for 38 bucks
It does batch editing meta tags. Try out the free version and see if it does your images, may be for extras the pro vesrion is required hopefully the free version will do teh batch meta tags part.
