Is it possible to have a centralized Keywords XML file on the server, so that each designer can share and use the same Keywords XML file in their Adobe Bridge application?
We are generating a central image library for our Creative Services Department and would very much like to use Adobe Bridge. Only problem we've found so far is with different people creating different spellings and abbreviations for the same keywords. If we all shared the same keywords XML file then that could potentially alleviate this problem for us.
Could anybody on here shed some light?
I don't know if you figured this out or not, but Yes, this is possible - however there are issues with Bridge Caches and sharing an image library - there is another thread on here that i found very helpful. i'll post a link to it when i have a chance to.
But, to answer your question, have one person create the keyword list you would like to use. then, in Bridge, in the keyword menu choose 'export'. then have everybody choose 'clear and import' in the same menu. we save our keywords list in a Bridge folder in the same location that are image library is stored in.
