Hello,

 

Let me start by saying thanks to anyone that takes the time to read and inpart wisdom on this, as I have been trying to find an easy way of handling my photo files in bulk, simply put I want to take the keywords from the file metadata and copy them to the title metadata field. I am sure there is a way to do it as with anything, but I am looking for a way to do it via Lightroom, or Bridge or any software I could use as I am not very good at any cmd stuff.

 

Thanks in advance

Copy keywords from metadata to title? The freeware called Exiftool will do this.

 

But I just have to ask, what is the benefit having keywords in title fields compared to having keywords in keyword fields?

Mainly to be used for seo purposes, to my knowledge when uploading a file
onto a website, the title field becomes an alt tag for that photo. I do not
know if that is the same for keywords field.
I heard about the program you mentioned but I honestly did not spend too
much time on it, hoping to find a way via lightroom.

Thank you for the explanation, I was very curious. I am not aware of way to do this in Lightroom Classic; maybe there's a plug-in somewhere that does this.
