Join Colin Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Using keywords to organize images, part of Lightroom 1.3 for Digital Photographers.
One of the best ways of tagging images and being able to find them later on…is by using keywords.…Keywords are very powerful. We can use these with that slideshows and prints and…with those web galleries, they provide important information, but even more…importantly than that, it enables us to find our images later on among…thousands and thousands of images.…And we can assign keywords in a lot of different ways in Lightroom.…First of all, let's begin with some basic keywording.…Here we have a photograph that has some keywords assigned to it. You can tell a…keyword is there because you see this little badge at the bottom.…
This little badge says the photo has keywords.…The images that don't have these badges don't have the keywords yet.…When I select on the image, you can view the keywords in two places.…On the right-hand panel we can look in the Keyword tags, and we can see the…assigned keywords to that image.…On the left side on the keyword tags we can look at the ones with the…check marks, those are the keywords that are assigned to those images.…
