Hello, I am new to the forum.

I have this script below:

exiftool "-alldates<filename" "-filecreatedate<filename" "-filemodifydate<filename" DIR

I am trying to create a folder action, quick action or application in automator that I can drag and drop files into and it run this script.
My problem is this script asks for a directory (DIR) is there a way in automator to have it reference the directory of the inputed files in the script itself or a way to rewrite the script properly so it references the inputed files as the directory?

Or can I use applescript instead of Shell script?

Any help is appreciated.

Hello and welcome.

That is far beyond my experience with AppleScript/Automator and Terminal shell scripts. Maybe the folks over at MacScripter could help?
