    Library module Help me think through this keywording issue

    Back story: At one time I had high hopes for custom XMP metadata fields, because Adobe described such fields in their original documents about XMP. But they failed to follow through, and even today Lightroom doesn't natively support custom metadata fields. And even if Lightroom did, no other...

    Keyword count and functionality

    When I first started using Lightroom I didn't have the option ticked to write meta data to a sidecar file, I subsequently lost a lot of editing and keywords when the catalogue corrupted and the back up wouldn't work, I now have several thousand images without keywords, obviously I can find these...

    Keyword updating question.

    Hi All, Can anyone tell me if changing/updating keywords in Lightroom Library mode, should Lightroom automatically update any previously exported images too? The photographs are not in any collections. Mine doesn't appear to do so.

    LR Performance During Keywording

    I've been having performance problems during keywording. Keywording works fine initially, and gets gradually less and less responsive. In addition, selecting photos gets less responsive, and sometimes clicks for selection are ignored. Leaving LR and restarting temporarily resolves the issue...

    Less than X keywords

    Hi Is it possible to identify photos that have less than, say, three keywords? (Using a Smart Collection or otherwise.) I have the preset Smart Collection which identifies photos without any keywords, but I was hoping to go a bit further.

    Family Photo Keyword Hierarchy

    Hi There, I've completed scanning 7000+ slides of my family and I'm anxious to begin keywording. I've read so much I'm going cross eyed, but I still don't understand what my hierarchy should look like. I've started down the road of a Who, What, Where, When approach, but don't know if this is...
