Keywords Samples


Here is a list of some commonly used Project and File keywords. This is not an exhaustive list, but it will be helpful when creating your own keyword structure in OpenAsset.

Project vs File Keywords

OpenAsset offers you the ability to tag both projects and individual files with searchable keywords. 

  • Project Keywords are used to tag projects with project-related data (i.e. Market Sector, Services, Location, etc).  When a project is tagged, all the images within that project will also be tagged with those project keywords. 
  • File Keywords are used to tag individual files with searchable terms (interior, exterior, rendering, photo, etc).
