Hey guys -- we just launched a new product here at Wetpixel!
Renowned underwater photographer and educator Marty Snyderman, Dive Training's Contributing Editor Barry Guimbellot and Wetpixel's Eric Cheng have teamed up to create an importable keyword list designed for underwater photographers using Adobe Lightroom or Apple Aperture. The MarineLife Keyword List features keywords for over 12,000 species of marine wildlife, including common names, scientific names, and full taxonomy.

Here's a video of me working with the keyword list:
Several people have contacted me to learn how to find images that either 1. do not have keywords attached or 2. images that have keywords, but none of our MarineLife species keywords.
In Lightroom, go to the Library module and activate the "Filter" feature above the grid image view. Use these following criteria for finding images without any keywords: TEXT--Keywords>Doesn't Contain>a,e,i,o,u.
This combination of criteria will show all images without any keywords.
To find an image that doesn't contain a species from our MarineLife Keyword list, use the following criteria to search: TEXT--Keywords>Doesn't Contain> :. (The last qualifier is a colon, without the period). Since our common name species keywords are "attached" to their genus and species with a colon, this combination of qualifers will show all images that have not had one of our MarineLife Keywords attached.
We hope this helps users find images that need keywords assigned.
