If you have forgotten to apply a metadata template when importing images into Lightroom, you can always apply it in the Library Module. To do so, select the images in the Grid view (in the Library module), and choose the desired template from the Preset drop down in the Metadata panel.
This is not only a good wayto add a “forgotten” metadata template but also to assign a more image-specific template to a subset of images. For example, you may have slightly different templates to apply different “Image Usage Rights” or other information to a subset of images.
