With TagYour.Photos, you’ll be able to create a hierarchical cue structure in Lightroom at no extra cost to use to search and categorize your photos. Here are some easy steps to get your photos structured into Lightroom and how to get an easy photo search with hierarchical keywords in Lightroom.
1. Settings in TagYour.Photos
To use the hierarchical keywords generated by TagYour.Photos in Lightroom, you need to make the following settings in TagYour.Photos:
Tagging type: hierarchical
Order: Left to right
Toplevel Landmarks: Landmarks
2. Add folder in TagYour.Photos
Add the folder in TagYour.Photos for which you would like to have keywords automatically determined.
Once all photos have been processed, this will be displayed via the status.
3. Check the keywords
If you want you can check in Windows Explorer whether the keywords were assigned correctly to your photos.
4. Import your photos into Lightroom
Now you can import your photos into Lightroom. Either in an existing or in a new catalog. In the following example, we have created a new catalog to better illustrate the automatically generated keyword structure.
Once the import is complete, you will see directly the keyword structure stored in your photos. With this structure you can continue to work as usual.
5. Categorize, filter or search in your photos
You can now work with your photos as usual using the library filter. The keyword structure, which had to be laboriously built up by hand, is now directly available without further ado. Completely automatically you have an easy photo search with hierarchical keywords in Lightroom.
You can now filter as you like, for example, for all bridges in the field of architecture.
Or you get an overview of the recognized attractions in the US; below the Lincoln Memorial.
Subsequent processing of photos
Of course you can also have photos processed with TagYour.Photos, which you already have in your Lightroom catalogs. All you have to do is read the metadata of your photos back into Lightroom after processing with TagYour.Photos. You can find the corresponding functions either via the context menu or in the main menu under Metadata.
