    When to add keywords to 106,00 images


      I an m new to Lightroom and have 106,000 images in about 2000 folders in a complex Windows folder tree.  The folder tree structure will provide at least 2 or 3 keywords for each image in a particular folder.


      Should I add the keywords folder by folder all the way down the tree as I import?


      Import the entire folder tree with subfolders and then do the keywording within Lightroom after the import.


      Take the middle ground and add keywords to only top level folders as I import and then do the work on the subfolders and sub-sub folders later in Lightroom. I am sure I will significantly simplify the tree structure once I am in Lightroom.


      If any of these approached would work, is there a time savings using one approach?
