There is one more technique that you can use to apply keywords, and I'm going to showcase that here. In the Library module, press the G key to navigate to the Grid view. Now in this particular case my thumbnails are pretty small, so I'm going to go ahead and press the Plus icon, which will increase the size of the thumbnails. The Minus icon will decrease those. All right, well, now that I can see all my thumbnails a little bit more closely, what I've realized is that there is another keyword which I would like to apply to these particular images. All these images were captured at a particular gym, which is named p3.
So what I'm going to do is I'm going to click on the spray can. Once you've done that you have some settings here; I'm going to choose Keywords. Now the keyword that I want to apply is p3, which is the name of that particular gym, and so then I'll go ahead and hover over these images. Once I hover over these, I can click and assign a keyword to that particular image. I can do that also simply by holding down this button and then clicking and dragging. You notice that now all of these images are highlighted. When I let go, it will then apply, or add, those keywords to those particular photographs.
All right, well, let's add the keywords to all of the images, and then all of a sudden let's say we realize, you know what, well, this one was at p3, it was actually outdoors, so it wasn't technically in the gym. In that case, I need to remove this keyword. What you can do is you can use a great shortcut. If you're on a Mac, that's the Option key; if you're on a PC, that's the Alt key. Hold that down. It changes the spray can into this eraser, so now I'll go ahead and click, and then what it'll do is it'll remove that particular keyword.
We can also click and do the same thing and drag, and we can remove the keywords from multiple images as well, as needed.
