With TagYour.Photos, you can easily create a hierarchical keyword structure in Capture One to use to search and categorize your photos.
In the following, we’ll describe the simple steps you’ll take to get your photos structured into Capture One.
1. Settings in TagYour.Photos
To use the hierarchical keywords generated by TagYour.Photos in Capture One, 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 Capture One
Now you can import your photos into Capture One. 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 keywords in your photos.
Also, the keyword catalog is automatically built from the keywords contained in the photos and is available for use in your photos as usual.
5. Categorize, filter or search in your photos
Through the filter you can now work with the keywords and your photos as usual. The structure of the keywords that had to be laboriously set up by hand is now directly available without further ado.
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 US Capitol.
Subsequent processing of photos
Of course, you can also have photos processed with TagYour.Photos, which you already have in your Capture One catalogs. All you have to do is upload the metadata of your photos back into Capture One after processing TagYour.Photos. You can find the corresponding functions either via the context menu or in the main menu under Image > Load metadata . The functions are executed on the selected photos respectively. To apply them to all photos you have to select all photos in advance.
