Metadata Templates for Bridge/Photoshop

Every once in a while, I need to batch add copyright notices, or similar disclaimers to images. Not that I’m that good at photography I need to copyright them, but I feel the need is still there. Adobe Bridge has the ability to append/replace metadata in images (EXIF for JPEGs for example) with additional information. However, figuring out how to make the templates isn’t exactly easy. A quick guide on building a nice quick template can be found here. The basics require the use of Photoshop to set a dummy image with the data you need, and exporting it as a template. Once saved in the right location, Bridge can see the template, and apply to images. Pretty cool.
