Note that all selected photos on the left will now be in bold.
In the Thumbnail browser, your changed photo(s) will now be highlighted in purple.
Click on the Images menu and click Save Changes or Save Changes of Selected Images. Or use the hotkey combination.
As you add keywords, they are automatically saved to a drop-down list for future use.
Edit Most Recently Used Items
