Transfer keywords from Adobe Bridge to iPhoto Apps
I love iPhoto for my personal best-of archive, but use Adobe's Bridge and Photoshop to organize, preview, edit, add copyright and keyword info to my photos.

I've found that I don't have to do the keyword thing twice if, instead of adding these files from the Finder, I drag images to iPhoto directly from Bridge. Somewhere between these two applications, the keywords get recognised and added to iPhoto along with the image.

This also removes the need to save files with special names to ease finding them in the Finder. Next up, it would be great if Bridge Ratings and IPTC Core Location were recognised, too.

Transfer keywords from Adobe Bridge to iPhoto
Authored by: ChrisH on Aug 11, '06 05:08:23AM

I just tried this and it didn't work for me. I'm using the current version of both Bridge and iPhoto. I wonder if it doesn't have something to do with using RAW files for my workflow. Although I did generate a JPEG from the original RAW file, which retained the keywords I had added to the RAW file, but when I dragged it to iPhoto it did not show any keywords.

This worked for me just now. I just selected some images in Adobe Bridge and then draged them into iPhoto and I see the keywords with the images.
