Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding keywords to photos, part of Lightroom 5: 1 Organizing Your Photos.
…The whole point of keeping our digital photos organized of…course is to be able to find a particular photo later.…Sometimes you're literally looking for a specific photo, and in other cases you may…just be looking for a photo from…a particular place, or of a particular subject.…In many situations keywords can be…especially helpful for locating specific images.…But also for reminding you about the contents of a particular photo.…Let's take a look at some examples of using keywords for your images.…Here I have for example an image of a fluke of a humpback whale.…
It was captured in Alaska and when I imported this image along…with the others from this same trip, I added a keyword, Alaska.…And so this image has Alaska as a keyword but no other keywords.…If I want to be sure to remember later what type of whale this was…or when I want to look for a particular image, I may want to reference keywords.…In this case, a keyword could help remind me later of what type of…whale this was or help me locate the image based on specific keyword values.…
