Question about Keywords and Categories


Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

I got a question regarding Categories and Keywords.


I have no Idea on what I can write where.


Could you explain to me what might be the best solutions in your opinion for this example image:




Airport, Travel, Airplane, plane,



Boeing 777, Boeing 777-300ER, Emirates, Airlines, Emirates Airlines, Hamburg, Hamburg Airport, HAM,



I would like to have hirachiel keywords and categories, but since those can't be stored inside the EXIF Metadata I have to use the non hirachial tags.


Please give me your ideas, on how to tag this picture.

Hi Rene,


as far as I know the category is a standard definition. See: http://www.iptc.org/std/photometadata/documentation/GenericGuidelines/index.htm#!Documents/guidelineformappingcategorycodestosubjectnewscodes.htm

Because I'm not a professional I don't use the Category and assign the information to "Collection" and "Keywords". The information about the location is assigned to the Places tags.

In this case:




------Hamburg Flughafen

The Keyword hierarchy can be:





----Boing 777

----Boing 777-300

etc. ...


Regards, Uwe

when I try to import the tags from the link above I get the following error:


Another tag of this hirachial level is already imported.


I just exported my tags and than edited that version with the ones from the link and reimported it, but it didn't worked.

The .txt file that you sent me (with your exported tag structure) is not equal to your database that I restored from your backup.


There is a set of tags similar to keywords or categories that follow right after the category entries. They start from the "Abstract" word on the zero-level.


How did you get this .txt file?


Plus I see that your zero level contains two "People" entries - you need to fix it before importing this file.
