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.

Please add this simple feature to Adobe Bridge. It's critical in my workflow.
It has been available in competing photo culling applications over decade!

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.
