Copying Adjustments From 1 Pic 2 Another ?

    I'm current working on 3 near identical photos of a hotel with a fountain in front.
    The only thing that's different is the fountain display.

    Can I transfer adjustments from one photo to the other two, without repeating my actions over and over ?
    I've tried dragging items from the History & Layers pallets, some adjustments do "work", but most don't.
    (Dragging from History/Layer pallet, over and on to the second image directly. I can't figure where else too drag it).
    The second image gets overwritten by the original image.

    I've nearly finished one image, but I probably should have recorded an Action at the start of processing.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for your reply.
    Is that basically the limit of what can be dragged over ?

    One of the things I tried to copy over was the Fill Tool's color, I'm still correcting my magenta/green stripes and I've created the selection around the sky (which I can transfer from one to another photo).
    I should have made a note of the colors values, so I could reuse that color later on and additionally settings for plugins etc.

    Other little things like the crop tool, would have been nice.
    I know it's possible in ACR, but I import from NX2.

    I guess we can't have everything.
