Is there a way I can select a collection or group of images and add the same metadata (notes, copyright, etc) to all of them at once, like what can be done when importing images into a collection?

Thanks for the help.

There is a gotcha' hiding there tho'. Check the status of Library > Metadata > Show Metadata for Target Photo Only. I believe that menu setting needs to be 'unchecked' for the multiple edit to work.

And btw Bob_B, welcome to the forums!
