Apply keywords to photos in the Light Table

You can use the Light Table to arrange your photo selection in a freeform manner. After arranging your photos into groups, you can apply keywords to a group of photos at once. For example, if you make a Light Table album consisting of the selects from your wedding shoot, you can group the photos according to the part of the wedding event they show. After you’ve arranged them, you can apply keywords, such as Getting Ready, Wedding, Ceremony, Formal Shots, and Reception, as appropriate.
