  • 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.

Keywords in LR Web (or Portfolio)

I'm working on scanning in many (3,500 so far) old photos from 1910 on from various family albums. Many have names transcribed from the albums and entered as Keywords. IN addition, some have Titles and a few have Captions.

I've discovered for myself, then read up in the forum, the discussions on how Title and Captions are displayed, which I understand. However I can't find any info on keywords.

Ideally, I want to display these images with the keywords (and titles and captions) so that other family members can fill in gaps, for me and make corrections where I have it wrong.

However I can't see any way to display keywords. Is that correct, or am I missing something.

Thanks

They are displayed on the right hand side, in the same way as titles and captions. They are down the bottom.

The problem may be that the keywords haven't been uploaded. They are only uploaded if you have saved metadata back to the files before the files were synced with LrMobile. If you subsequently change the keywords, those updates are not uploaded. Yes, it is crazy and unacceptable, but that's what Adobe have done.

I'm probably off topic and you more than likely know this but you can upload LR Collections to Portfolio.

You may be, but in any case the answer's no. The route from "Classic" to Portfolio is via LrWeb.

Thanks a million for the prompt and helpful response.

I'll save out the keywords then sync again.
