Here I want to look at a quick tip that we can use when we need to synchronize keywords across multiple files. In order to make this simple, let's go ahead and click on the last two images in the set. Click on one, hold down Command or Ctrl then click on another. One of the things you'll notice is you've this Auto Sync option. You can flip the switch to toggle between Sync or Auto Sync. Let's flip on Auto Sync and then what I want to do is, I want to delete all of these keywords. I'm going to remove them all and I'm going to add just one keyword.
I'm going to do this just to keep it kind of simple, so we can see how this works. I'm going to add 4x5 because these photographs were captured with this 4x5 camera. I'll go ahead and click to add that, and then I'm going to click off of these images. What you'll see here is that I now have that keyword on both of these files, both of those are synchronized. You know another way to do this, is to click on one image, hold down Command or Ctrl and click on another or you can always hold down the Shift key as well, and click on another photograph to select it. Just make sure you have one or more photos targeted.
The next thing you can do is, if you don't have Auto Sync turned on, you can click on the Sync button to open up the Synchronized Metadata Panel. Now here you can see you have a wide range of information: Camera Info, IPTC Info, Copyright, so on and so forth. Well down at the bottom we have keywords. Well I want to add a keyword to this. I'm going to go ahead and just add his name back to these two images here and then I'll click Synchronize. Now what that will allow me to do is to have those two keywords on these two images.
In other words, if ever you need to have photographs with the same types of keywords, you can use these techniques. The two techniques that you can use are Auto Sync, that allows you to do that automatically, or you can always click on the Sync button to open up the Synchronized Metadata panel, and then modify the keywords inside of that panel, in order to make those changes.
