I can't find this in the manual or help files, and can't find a command anywhere ... I want to copy the metadata (author/copyright on through keywords) from one image in a folder to the others. It's easy enough to do in Lightroom ... other than creating a new metadata template to then discard, which btw doesn't seem to give the option of copying keywords too ... how the heck do I do this?

Neil,
The most of the things you want can be done with EM2 scripts.
John Beardworth wrote some extra scripts when the default ones ar not enough (http://www.beardsworth.co.uk/lightroom/iview/
Hope you can use these?

I have to write or find a script just to copy the file-info from one file to the others in a folder? Wow. So , to do nearly anything I would typically do in Lightroom easily and without learning anything, I've got to learn how to write EM scripts and/or find/modify them? Boy, is that a time saver! (not!)

I'm just used to Lightroom, where such a thing is considered a standard thing to do and is both featured in all helps/manuals/books and is awfully easy to do. Huh.

Hello Neil,

I also see some questions from you on the IdImager forum, are you working with 3 different DAM's or are you just orientating on them?
My advise is to 'dive' into one system only and try to learn all ins and outs of it. Some functionalities are better than the opposition and some are worse, isn't this always the case?
Using the available or custom scripts (from John) is not that hard but indeed you have to put in some effort to understand.
If i was you i would put effort into learning one system only, not three.
Succes,

Roelof

You don't have to use scripts. Select the source thumbnail, then select the others. Go to the Info panel, and tick the little mark to the left of each field name that you want to synchronise. When done, click the tick mark at the top of the panel.

It's actually much better than how Lightroom does it!
