Managing Keywords

Along with titles, comments, and ratings, you can assign keywords to your photos. First, you must learn how to create, rename, and delete keywords. Before performing these tasks, open iPhoto's Preferences window by choosing Preferences (cmdcomma.gif) from the iPhoto menu, and then click the Keywords tab.

To create a keyword:

  1. Click the + button.

    iPhoto creates a new untitled keyword (Figure 3.44).
