I know this comes up every now and then - but I need an application to copy/paste all the IPTC data from one photo to another.  I used to use Nikon CaptureNX but that's dead and buried.   I've tried a number of applications, and they're either junk, or they don't  have this feature - except for Photo Mechanic, which does it well but has a nosebleed price of $150 (I let the trial expire).

Surely there is something.

IrfanView it's free.

Tried Ifranview, and if it has a way to do this, it's buried so deep I can't find it.  It is a very old and clunky program and does things in weird ways, using odd terminology.  I gave up on it pretty quick.

Click on the Image tab, choose Information at the top of the drop down list.  Click on IPTC info at the bottom of the box, edit to your hearts content.

What/where is the 'Image tab'?

I finally figured out that you have to use Files/Thumbnails to start browsing.  Then I drill down 9 levels (it always starts at the top) and see the thumbnails I want.  But no Image tab, or any other tabs.  Google has nothing for "Irfanvew image tab".

I'll assume you mean 'menu item', not 'tab'.

In the "Thumbnails" window where I see and select photos, there's no "Image" menu item.  In the other (main?) window, which is empty, there's an Image menu, but no IPTC selection in it.

Are we talking about the same program?

But hey - we can let this go.  I just found a little gem of a program called PixiShot that does this in a simple and obvious way - see thumbnails, right-click copy, right-click paste. And it's free.

Yes, Menu item.  PixiShot looks interesting.

You can also do it in Windows, right click on thumbnail, properties, but not all agencies can read it.

XnView is a free and good Programm to edit pictures and the IPTC data.

If you are a little bit into programming I would recommend ExifTool. Needs some time to get into it, but it's very powerful, lets you manipulate IPTC data every way you like...

Don't be so complicated. in Irfanview with an image open, I then I, that's keystroke shortcuts for Image and IPTC data. You can open two copys of Irfan at the same time or copy and paste to any text editor, then copy and paste to the next image.

Or batch edit https://tng.lythgoes.net/wiki/index.php/Batch_updates_of_IPTC_tags_using_IrfanView

What many do not know is that the library module of Lightroom continues to function after the license runs out.
So, you can go download the trial version of Lightroom, use up the trial period, and still have a much of the programs functionality completely free.
In the Lightroom library module you can copy and paste any metadata you want (menu Metadata > Copy Metadata).

It works, it is simple and it is free!
