Yes, this tool is exactly what you want. Look here :


...This is the first tool to sync all images of current album. There is a new 
menu option "Album/Sync Pictures Metadata"


... This is the second tool to sync all albums. This one will take a while of 
course. There is a new menu option "Tools/Sync All Pictures Metadata".

Th sync process will use the settings from Setup/Metadata page.
