Keyword Count

You can use the keyword count facility to track how many images have how many keywords. This could be useful for a number of reasons including: finding images that need to be keyworded or images that have only a few keywords attached that need to be updated.
 
To do this type the following into the search box "kc" followed by > < = or : and then a number. So kc>2 would return all the images with more than 2 keywords, or kc=5 would return all the images with 5 keywords tagged.
 
  • Kc - keyword count
  • > - greater than
  • < - less than
  • = or : - equals
