I would like to make more use of Lightroom, but I have a long history of using Bridge and all my image files have Bridge keywords. Is there any way one can convert Bridge keywords into a Lightroom format?

Lightroom should pick up on the keywords you entered via Bridge if you have it set to write the keywords out to the file (or XMP in the case of RAW).

Hi Tonto, welcome to the forum!

If you have keywords that aren't already assigned to pictures, and you want to import your full list into LR, you can Export your keyword list from Bridge (via the flyout menu in the Keywords panel) and Import your list into Lightroom (via the Metadata menu). Or just apply them all to one picture and import that is a pretty quick way too!
