Using Structured Keywords
« on: August 02, 2020, 06:10:23 PM »
Is there a good resource to understand how Structured Keywords work in PM?  I am trying to find a solution to do my keywording in PM so the client can search/find in Bridge to find selected images for editing.  The hierarchy is pretty simple - just two levels.  The client is a housing developer.

Example Keywords Samples:

Community
- Eastwood Commons
- West Village
- Park Place
- Northland Village

Rooms
- 1
- 2
- 3
- 4

Presentation
- Kitchen
- Living Area
- Bedroom
- Full Bath
- Half Bath

I want to be able to have the keyword values be:
Community | Eastwood Commons, Rooms | 1, Presentation | Kitchen

which matches how Bridge likes to see them.  Currently, I have to load the Keyword/Sub-Keyword pairing with the pipe symbol between them as a regular keyword pool.  Wondering if there is a more civilized way of creating/maintaining keywords in PM that are downstream friendly with Bridge.

Thanks

Mike,

Are you unable to create those three hierarchies in the Structured Keywords window?  I'm not sure what the problem is that you're describing.  The result you desire to achieve is certainly possible in Photo Mechanic.

It’s not a “problem”, but rather ignorance on my part as to how Structured Keywords differ regular key wording and which I should be exploring to get the result I want.
