When I take images from my camera, it contains the Author field as Photographed_by_me, However I also use Helicon Focus, after layering the images all Exif info is lost.


Due to the way my workflow operates, I would like to make a script that checks if this Exif field exists using exifTool. If the Author field contains something then move it to Folder B. else add the author as "Photographed_by_me" then move this file to folder B.


In Photoshop it shows as "Author", under the description tag, but in the coding I think its "Creator"


I hope someone can help me with this?


Many Thanks
