  1. I use Xpiks. It's free and excellent. you import your pictures into it, then title and keyword, when stuck you click suggestions, then key in key in 2 or 3 keywords and it trawls through 3 agencies for similer pictures and gives you keyword for them, click them and they go into your picture. Just google Xpiks and it pops up. Malcolm
  2. Something to bear in mind is that while you can pay for the package yearly direct from Adobe, you can also buy a voucher from Amazon which is simply a pre-paid yearly sub from Adobe. I did this the first year and saved about £6 on the total yearly cost, this year, it was being sold at just £71 on Amazon for a few weeks, so got it then, and that means a saving of around £30.

There are limits to how much you can push in Lightroom and even Photoshop, and it takes time. Step up HDR and job done. Photomatix is good
  5. I have read with interest some recent posts on keywording. I do use keywording software. It is Keyword smart. It helps come up with different words meaning the same thing, like "happy" will generate about 20 words. Now I know a lot of people say the less the number of keywords the better. I tried that. But my point is, surely as long as the keyword relates to a picture then it is ok, regardless of the number. For instance, if I am a picture editor in England or American and want a 'happy smiling boy' that is what I would key in. But if English is not my first language, for instance if
