How do I reset iphoto so that my keywords appear below each photo.  It is very cumbersome to have to click on each photo to see if I've keyed a photo to a keyword or not.  I used to be able to scan my recent imports and assign keywords very easily.  The new update has turned this into a chore,  I miss the functionality and cannot figure out how to get it back other than reverting to older version of iphoto.  Does it exist in another form?

    iPhoto menu -> Provide iPhoto Feedback and let themknow you want it.

     

    You can finf any photo in the Librry (or within an Event or Album) that is missig keywords with a Smart Album:

    File -> New Smart Album

     

    Keyword -> is -> None

    Terence, that works to a point...

     

    however there are limitations to this smart album method:

     

    1.  I cannot delete a photo within that album view, why can't I delete a photo?

    2.  I can only assign one keyword and the photo disappears.  Sometimes I use multiple keywords. How do I assign multiple keywords

     

    Is there a workaround for that?  Other than going thru my photos again

     

    The ability to see the multiple keywords under the photo in the last import was a very valuable functionality that is truly missed.

    That might be one reason to upgrade to Aüerture in the long run. Being able to cusomize exactly what is displayed in the Browser below the photos or in other views is one of the strong points of Aperture vs. iPhoto. Migration would be easy - simply open your iPhoto lbraries in Aperture.

    As a workaround - you might consider to add important keyword text to the title of your photo. This you will see below the photo in the browser.

    You can also use the title text in smart albums with rules like: "Title contains key1"

    1.  I cannot delete a photo within that album view, why can't I delete a photo?

     

    It's a Smart Album. That is, a list of answers to a question or instruction, in this case, 'Show me all the photos with no keywords'. So, as long as that is the condition of the photo it will show in the Smart Album.

     

    If you mean you cannot move a photo to the trash from the Smart Album, then try command-alt-delete.

     

    The ability to see the multiple keywords under the photo in the last import was a very valuable functionality that is truly missed.

     

    Hence my suggestion:

     

    iPhoto menu -> Provide iPhoto Feedback and let themknow you want it.
