Hi, I want to copy & paste the effect information.
How can I do that? I want to replace the image that already has the effect ( position, scale, etc information ) with another image.

When in the layer with all the effects, press F3 to bring up the effects panel. Select all, ctrl+C and then select the target layer, press F3 and paste (ctrl+V) into the new layer.

Should work

No need to copy and paste if you want to replace the contents of a layer with another piece of footage. From the AE help on imported files and footage items:
To replace the source footage item for a layer with another footage item, without affecting changes made to the layer properties, select the layer and then Alt-drag (Windows) or Option-drag (Mac OS) the new footage item onto the layer in the Timeline panel.

Whoooops my bad. I did not interpret the question correctly. Walter is 100% correct, just replace footage. pretty easy, I thought you wanted to apply the effects to another layer in the comp.
