Add a "find and replace" function to Bridge so that if you spot a spelling mistake in 200 image captions they don't need to be altered one by one.

One more question if you don't mind. What does "Global" do.

If you have a word more than once it will change them all, otherwise it just changes the first one it finds.
I have also added a couple more fields so please download the latest zip file.
All the best Brian.

Are you saying that in the same field if the word repeated more than once and if Global is NOT selected it will only change the first instance?

My ISP is closing all the free Web Spaces so my site will no longer exist.
This script can be downloaded from:-

I don't know if it works with any format but I guess it will work as long as there is metadata in the file. Can you see metadata in the Bridge?

Thank you for your reply. I tried and it does work only on jpg. My EPS/JPG has same meta and I wish to find/replace on both version. But it changed just JPG format...

No, not just jpg. I can change any RAW files too because it contains metadata.
Most likely your problem is that those field names are not the same as in jpg or RAW files. Maybe author can fix it for you.

Not all EPS and AI files support metadata, Photoshop EPS files have no problem but non Photoshop files do have  a problem, same for AI files.
