Build Master Keyword list from imported photos
« on: October 31, 2010, 06:01:58 PM »
I have over 6000 photos on OSX (Snow Leopard) that were brought over from Windows 7.  They were all tagged using Windows Live Photo Gallery so the keywords are embedded in the files.  How can I easily get these all of these keywords into the Master keyword list so I can reuse them for tagging new photos?

Bob,

There is no easy way.  You do a Text Export using the {keywords} variable to a single text file, manually edit the text file to put a single word on each line, and then import that text file into the Keywords dialog.
