• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Just allocated every keyword to every image.

Says it all, really, I wasn't concentrating, selected all images, thinking it was just one particular folder and somehow managed to do what I said in the title. If it's taught me one thing, it's that I need to prune my keyword list!

Is there anything I can do, or do I have to remove them all and re-keyword them?

It depends....if you haven't yet closed Lightroom, then you can use the Undo option to step backwards through the most recent actions.

But if you have closed and restarted Lightroom since the error, you might consider it better to revert to your last catalog backup, rather than start the whole keywording process again.

Hmm, I did shut it down. I guess there are instructions for reverting to the back up catalog in Victoria's book?

Thanks, I didn't fancy the other option.
