6.9. Summary

The primary purpose of the Library module is to organize your photos. The first level of this organization is applying keywords. If you take the time to do this properly, you'll be able to find any file you want when you need it. Keyword searches can be carried out on the entire catalog or within a single folder. The key to using keywords is to organize them in the Keyword List panel. The more organized this panel is, the more powerful it will be when you need to find something.

The next level of organization is using labels and stars (as well as flags) to place identifiers onto thumbnails. The most common way to use labels is to identify the winners and losers. In my system, I use green labels to identify my picks and red labels to identify rejects. I then use star ratings to rate the quality of all green labels. The important thing to remember about using labels and stars is to make your rating system global so that a particular label or star has the same meaning no matter where it appears in your catalog.
