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.

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!

Please release an updated Universal version! I just moved to Intel, iPhoto 6.0.4, and I need my KA! I'll donate!

Thanks!

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... :)

I love Keyword Assistant but it's in need of at least a small update. I do feel for the Intel Mac crowd out there. But even for us dark ages PPC people, we've seen two iPhoto updates and nary an update for KA (note to Ken Ferry, please don't abandon us). I was sick of not having the full KA feature set so I decided to hack around and I figured out how to very simply turn the features back on. Can't promise you it's a good idea but if you're a little adventurous, here's how:

Quit iPhoto -- Find your iPhoto application -- Control-click and choose Show Package Contents -- Drill through the following directories: Contents:NetServices:Bundles:KeywordAssistant.NetService:Contents:MacOS
Open KeywordAssistant in your favorite text editor (I like Smultron). Search for the phrase: "WarnForiPhotoVersionsAbove" and change the version number that immediately follows to something that corresponds to your current version of iPhoto -- Good luck.

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.

pixelgrass had trouble on 07 Mar 2006
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...
