So I could just do the automatic folder naming that LR does on import and if there is important shoot or event I could give the folder a name but if its just random stuff around my house, I can just leave it be and add tags to the photos. Back to tagging again...if I take a picture of a cake, I can add the tags "cake, food" but if it's a wedding cake, I could add "wedding cake, food"? I'm still trying to figuring out this keywording thing, its a lot different than Flickr because with Flickr I add tags for SEO and SEO doesn't matter in Lightroom. I think the keywords in Lightroom should be used for you to find the photos you want. @Dave442 You mentioned earlier that you like to add an S to some keywords like your desk analogy. I tried this, I have many pictures of my desk, and I just keyword them with Desk and searched for Desks and all the pictures of desks with the keyword Desk showed up even though I searched for Desks. So I'm not entirely sure if adding the S will make much difference.
