Re: Use of Catalogs

As a LR user for many years and constant user of LR's keyword/tagging routine I see this conversation concentrating only on the  catalog properties.

What I haven't seen is the associated and major advantage of catalogs is that the keywords/tags are added to every photo file exported from the application. Note that you can export without keywords/tags. I have ~9000 keywords in my catalog and while I have a problem with LR's tagging routine (only displays 18 keywords) nothing is perfect!

With LR I usually export ~3MB jpg which is stored with the RAW file and I also use Picasa and can use that to access any, or combination of the 300k photo's in my collection using the keyword search. Unfortunately hardly any other program/viewer is as efficient as Picasa and I have tried most.
