Keyword Manager overview

Keyword Manager introduces a brand new way of assigning keywords to your photos in a simple and efficient way.

Keyword Manager expands the functionality of your familiar iPhoto setup, and will greatly enhance your photo management experience. Download and try Keyword Manager today!

  • Hierarchical keyword grouping
    For example, you can have the keyword Paris as a subkeyword to France. Every time you assign Paris to a photo, France will also be assigned to that photo.
  • Much faster than any AppleScript based solution
    AppleScript based solutions become excruciatingly slow when assigning and removing keywords from a large amount of photos. Keyword Manager taps directly into iPhoto's own keywording system, for optimal performance.
  • Intelligent solutions for fast keywording
    Smart auto-completion helps you increase the rate at which you keyword your photos. Non-obtrusive auto-correction suggestions helps you avoid creating similar duplicate keywords.
  • Assign keywords while in full-screen mode
    With Keyword Manager you can still assign keywords to your photos, even when viewing them in full-screen mode.

It was an excellent tool. Unfortunately, the developers have decided to discontinue it, for understandable reasons. I quote: "Some of you may remember that we posted a beta version of Keyword Manager 1.6 earlier this year, which was compatible with iPhoto 9.1.1. However, when version 9.1.2 was released, the beta version no longer functioned. This is because a number of the functions that Keyword Manager uses to do its work were removed from iPhoto in that update. "Each version of iPhoto that is released requires us to rewrite the entire interface between Keyword Manager and iPhoto, due to the changes that Apple makes to the internal structure of the program. We'd like to stress that this is not unexpected nor in any way Apple's fault. It is just the nature of writing a plug-in for a program without a supported plug-in architecture. "The economics of keeping Keyword Manager up to date has caught up with us and making the plug-in work reliably in the current version of iPhoto, and then the next one after that, would require a substantial investment in time and resources from our side, and even then it is not certain that we would get Keyword Manager working as well as we'd like." Sorry to hear that - but thanks nevertheless to the developers for all the good work they did and the time they invested.

Has always worked for me. The author works hard to keep up with Apple's changes, but is diligent.
