Lightroom Keywording Tip

Thought I would pass on this tip about hierarchical keywording to those LR users that may not know about it as it is a great time saver as well a solving the problem of having you keyword box over cluttered with keywords. Those that already know can ignore it.

If you arrange your keywords hierarchicaly within each other then for example as shown here, if you type in the keyword blue tit.



Just blue tit appears in the keyword box but all the keywords that are hierarchicaly arranged above it in the keyword list are also added to the image.

In this case Nature, Wildlife, Animal, Bird, are added as keywords as well as blue tit just by adding the keyword blue tit.

Glad to have been of use Steve, if you have not started keywording yet here is a tip for you that will save you having to drag and rearrange your keywords hierarchicaly.

For the example above for the first time you enter a keyword enter it like so , blue tit>bird>animal> wildlife>nature, and it will automaticly put them into hierarchical order for you, after that just typing in blue tit will enter them all for you.
