Chapter 4: Working with Metadata > Keywords Overview

Keywords Overview

More than any other kind of metadata, keywords define the content of your images and help you locate them. Effective keywording of your images can make the difference between finding the perfect shot for a job or page upon page of also-rans. More importantly, it can mean finding the shot you know you have within a couple of seconds, as opposed to spending hours in a tedious trawl through folder upon folder of the wrong stuff.

Keyword Strategy

You might think that applying keywords to images is something that requires an individual approach and, to a degree, you’d be right. Regardless of the nature of a shoot, there will inevitably be some images that require unique keywords. The average soccer match doesn’t have an abundance of goals, not many wedding shots include the priest (hopefully) and not all product shots are cutouts.
