Currently Being ModeratedFeb 1, 2011 1:49 PM (in response to frmrt)Unfortunately, no.
Colour labels are like ratings, you can't have a photo rated 2 stars and 5 stars at the same time. Likewise, a photo cannot be labelled with two different colours.
Have you tried the "flag" function to replace one of the colours?20" iMac 2.4, 4GB (Late 2007), Mac OS X (10.6.3), 15" MBP 2.53, 4 GB (Late 2009)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 1, 2011 1:49 PM (in response to pilotguy74)That's an idea.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 1, 2011 1:49 PM (in response to frmrt)Keywords are a much better idea. The "flag" flag is best used for ad-hoc culls, not permanent ones. The built-in Flagged album is great place to corral Versions you want to stamp/export/Albumify/etc. all at once.
I have put in the feature request that multiple color-labels be allowed per version. I have found no sets of attributes for which I can use 8 one-and-only-one labels.MacBook Pro 13", Mac OS X (10.6.2), 4 G / 500 G
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 1, 2011 1:50 PM (in response to Kirby Krieger)Yeah, I use keywords extensively, and absolutely understand their value, as you highlight, but find that colored labels are more convenient for certain things. For example, I can very quickly mark (with the labels keyboard shortcuts) images without opening the Inspector and typing in keywords, and subsequently find images without creating a smart album, simply through their color "halos". (It's a "dumbed-down" process, to be sure, but it works when you're feeling lazy!)
Thank you for the response, and for submitting the request for multiple color labels.
