Quick Tips

Adding Keywords to Multiple files

In Bridge, you can add keywords to images to make searching for pictures a little less cumbersome. You don’t, however, want the process to become tedious as well. By either Command-clicking (PC: Ctrl-clicking) or Shift-clicking on images, you can select multiple files inside Bridge. Once you have the files selected, you can go to the Keywords panel and turn on any keyword you like. This will apply the keyword to all of the files that you have selected. It takes away a little bit of the pain of categorization, but just a little.

    The keywords panel can be found under the window tab along the top menu line. And might not work depending on your set up as keywords can’t be added to CR2 RAW files. If I figure out how to explain to the program that I might be looking at the RAW file but want to add data to the XMP sidecar, I’ll get back to you, as help obviously is no help on this.
