Chris ShepherdChris Shepherd has been busy getting a controlled vocabulary into both Lightroom and iView:

Now that I am trying Lightroom I thought I would try out if it is possible to use a controlled vocabulary when keywording images. David Riecks at Controlled Vocabulary has produced a controlled vocabulary keyword catalogue, which is a great basis for a structured keywording of files. It turns out its not too difficult to get the Control Vocabulary file into Lightroom, all it requires is a simple bit of Excel work to convert it. This is what you do….

I love tips that include Excel - it's still my favourite program. In fact once - maybe after a pint - I said I'd write a book on how to program Photoshop from it. No takers?
