Birds of North America Keywords
Birds of the North America keyword list is a keywords file created by professional photographers to simplify wildlife keywording workflow. It contains keywords for over 3,000 species of birds in North America, and includes not only common names, but also genus / species names, full taxonomic structure, descriptive terms, colors, behaviors, and more.
Searchable by common name or part of the common name, the keyword list ensures that you will never again have to type in long pseudo-latin scientific names when keywording your images in Aperture* or Lightroom. In addition, a number of other taxonomic names such as the kingdom, phylum, class, order, family and other sub-categories exist as parent keywords and are automatically applied when you tag your image.
Birds of North America keyword list can currently be imported into both Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture without adversely affecting your current keyword database. Upon import, the keywords are available for immediate use in keywording your marine wildlife images.
See our website at http://birdkeywords.com for directions on how to import the keywords list into your library.
COMPATIBILITY: Bird Keywords have been tested in Lightroom versions 1.1 - 2.3, and in Aperture in version 2.1.3. We do not recommend using Bird Keywords in versions of Aperture earlier than 2.0 because of poor keyword handling in earlier versions.
DISCLOSURE: Bird Keywords is a standalone product that may or may not be updated in the future. Bird Keywords is a working photographer''s tool meant to simplify keywording for the bird photographer and enthusiast. It should not be considered to be scientific reference material. Animal taxonomy and classifications change from time to time; keeping up with them would be more than a full-time job!
