Hi, I have an extensive archive of images, which are named appropriately as to subject. However, this info is not in metadata, just as filenames. These are legacy files, which came from film and have been scanned, so no metadata exists within the files as such.

 

Is there any way I can copy the file names into the metadata? I'd ideally prefer not to have to copy and paste across 100 000 images, so would prefer some sort of automated or semi-automated solution. Does anyone know of a programme that does this?
