Keyword Assistant

1.9.4
14 March 2007

iPhoto keyword management plug-in.

Overview

Keyword Assistant is an iPhoto plugin that makes keyword management quicker and easier.

It adds a panel with an auto-completing text field for entering keywords. This makes it realistic to keep and assign large numbers of keywords, for example one for every person in a photograph. That's a good thing because it makes searching for a photograph pretty easy. Other niceties include the ability to alphabetize the Keywords list.

Keyword Assistant is currently localized for English, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish and Russian.

I have been using Keyword Assistant for a few weeks in the testing process, and I find that it simply makes keywording useful. Without it the keywording functionality of iPhoto is simply horrible: unless you add all of your keywords in strict alphabetical order, and furthermore have a very limited number of them, the keywords panel (Cmnd-K) quickly become an unnavigable mess. With KA the problem is resolved in many ways. Most trivially the program lets you alphabetize your keywords. However, given that you haven't been running KA, I would bet that most everyone would have only a handful of keywords, if any. The real beauty of the program is in its autocomplete. With this familiar feature one can quickly tag a day's worth of shots with the hands completely on the keyboard, using the keyboard shortcuts (also provided by KA) to navigate between images while KA is in the foreground. Soon all of your images will be keyworded if you have even a trace of OCD in your makeup, and then the possibilities for individual pages for each keyword and the like become clear, especially when used with BetterHTMLExport templates that utilize keywords.

Works very very well. Sad to see there is no intention to make it iPhoto 08 compatible - I can't believe iPhoto's keyword handling is now as good as Keyword Assistant.

Finally an Intel-compatible version! I've been feeling the iPhoto pain since I switched to an Intel machine - now I can start tagging my photos again! THANKS!!

This tool is a must-have for iPhoto. It simplifies what is otherwise a near-impossible keyword tagging system. Thanks for the new Intel-compatible version, Ken!

I too !! I'll donate at once, the day it fully works with my version, and then commit myself to never ever update iPhoto again. (Who needs "Frontrow bug fixes" anyway ?)

I tried the edit proposed by EDITCANDY - changed 6.0.2 to 6.0.4 but... iPhoto crashed :( In any case Ken ... I (amongst many others I'm sure)join the hymn that KA is a great plug-in and that I also am looking forward to an update... :)

A great application, but now with recent updates to iPhoto, it is hobbled. You don't always appreciate the tools you have until you lose them! Please. Update KA soon...

A great addition makes adding keywords less of a chore. Its usefulness is highlighted by my recent move to an Intel mac where it doesn't yet work and I'm struggling to use iPhoto's built-in keyword UI. I'm eagerly awaiting the Universal Binary.

It seems that when editing in full screen, the navigation function (option+arrow) sometimes doesn't work, often after using an edit tool. Then you have to exit and re-enter full screen editing to get it going again. I'm using iPhoto 6.0.1. Anyone else have this bug? Apart from this bug, this little plug-in is awesome ! Thanks a lot to the developer...
