Auto-complete/fast keywording
« on: May 18, 2013, 06:11:08 pm »
I spent much of this afternoon playing around with PM for keywording images after a basketball shoot and couldn't really find a way to do it efficiently. As far as I can tell keywording in PM requires a mouse and lots of clicking.

Searching the forums I found two older threads with people hitting the same issue as me:

http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=2879

Has there been any improvement in this with newer versions of PM? Ideally PM would offer something similar to Lightroom, where you can just type and get auto-complete of a structured keyword.

Thanks,

Neil

No, there have been no improvements or additional features for keywording single images.

Ok :( Please add me to the list of people requesting it. It's the only thing that keeps me from ditching Lightroom completely for image ingest.

Heh, so I'm searching to see if auto-complete of keywording is a Photo Mechanic feature and find this thread where I asked four years ago :)

Any updates on this? Any plans to include it?

No changes, no plans at this time.
