Applying metadata to all images in a folder

I have about 1000 folders with various numbers of tiffs in each folder and I am trying to figure out a simple mod to the DIY Metadata script that will apply metadata to all of the images in each folder. So each line in my tab-delimited text file would be a folder name followed by the appropriate metadata. The script would apply that same metadata to all of the tiffs in each folder.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure how to go about this using a Bridge script, however, I can probably help with an ExifTool alternative – where you would point to the top/upper level directory and recursively process all files from all sub level directories (optionally only applying edits only to .TIF files and possibly ignoring specifically named sub-directories).

Navigate up to the parent directory that all of the 1000s of folders are sitting in. Then using the filter on the left side, choose TIFF as the key filter which will remove any other files. Now go up to View, and come down to the menu item that says to include Subfolders in the view.

You should now be able to see all the TIFFs from that top directory through all of the subfolders.
Now you can select all and apply metadata templates or batch process as needed.
