Chapter 4. The File Browser > The Keywords Palette

The Keywords Palette

The Keywords palette lets you create keywords (which you can group into categories called keyword sets), and apply them to a selected image or images. The keywords get written into the Keywords field of the IPTC metadata, so they're visible in the Metadata palette—you just can't edit or apply them there.

Keyword sets appear as folders—the triangle to the left lets you expand and collapse them. When they're expanded, you can see the list of keywords in the set (see Figure 4-13). To apply a keyword to selected images, click in the column at the left of the palette—a checkmark appears, indicating that the selected images contain this keyword. To apply all the keywords in a set, click to the left of the set name rather than beside the individual keyword.

Icons at the bottom of the palette let you create a new keyword set or keyword, or delete an existing keyword set or keyword. Note that deleting keywords removes them only from the list, not from any files that contain them. You can also move keywords to a different category by dragging them.

The palette menu mostly replicates the functions of the control buttons, but the Rename command provides the sole path for renaming keywords or categories.
