Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Correct keyword spelling errors, part of Cleaning Up Your Mess in Lightroom Classic CC.
- [Voiceover] Keywords can be tremendously helpful…for a couple of reasons.…First, when you are looking for an image…that contains a specific subject,…you can search for a keyword based on that subject,…assuming, of course, that you've assigned a keyword…in the first place.…In many cases it can also be helpful to remind you…about a subject.…If I randomly stumbled upon this photo, for example,…and couldn't remember where I captured it,…I could look at the keywords and see…that this image was captured in Bratislava.…Of course, if you are going to use keywords…to help keep your photos organized,…it's also important that those keywords be accurate.…
And in this case I have a bit of a problem.…This photo has Bratislava as a keyword,…and Slovakia,…but Slovakia has been misspelled,…there is a C instead of a K.…And if I navigate among my various images,…I can see that all of the images in this particular folder…have the exact same misspelling for Slovakia.…And that's probably an indication…that I applied these keywords during the import process,…
