Copy and Paste Metadata between images
I think the implementation of metadata on Bridge is pretty good, but it would be a much more powerful feature for me if I could cut and paste the metadata from one file to another. I understand that I can use templates and apply them to a large group of photos using the append metadata option from the dropdown menu, but I don't want to be constantly clearing out old templates from the list to keep it manageable. Instead, I use one template that I edit and re-use for these purposes, but if I've changed it since working on a particular job then I have to re-make the template all over again.
I think it would be supremely useful if you could right click on a file in Bridge and have a menu option that said 'Copy Metadata' and then you could do the same to paste it to another file. Alternatively, if you could right-click an image and create or edit a metadata template that would auto-populate the current metadata from that specific image into its fields that would be a suitable but less preferable workaround.

Adding these features will make Bridge a wonderful Programs to manage images and all media files.
1-Copy and Paste Metadata between images
2-Have a Histogram on any pane.
3-A compare viewer for two or 3 images, were it can be zoom..
I would love to have this feature... just grab the metadata and add it to another or all selected images. There could be a menu to select the field it needs to copy every time you grab the metadata
Very important feature. A reason to use other application. Please add it.
