Lightroom Desktop: Search by "No Keywords" option in filter

I use a lot the "None" filter to know if I have any pictures I still haven't document. I think it's easy to implement and extremely useful.

This is pretty critical - is there any other way to find the photos you've not keyworded yet, other than just going through one by one?

Since moving from LR Classic to LR, the habit of adding or managing keywords has been difficult and as such I haven't added Keywords to a large number of photos.  However there appears to be no mechanism to search for Photos with no Keywords.

Ideally LR Classic and LR would sync keywords (as Classic has a Keyword filter for this scenario), but this doesn't appear to be a feature that is supported either.

Is it possible to add a "No Keyword" to the filter, similar to the searching for Album:Not In Any Album?  Such as Keyword:None or Keyword:""?

I also wish this would be an option! It would make it easier to hunt down those photos that sneak through the cracks and when setting up lightroom initially to ensure all photos have the correct keywords

Why isn't there like an experimental feature to auto-tag photos using a cloud-based Machine Learning solution? The one in Adobe Stock does quite a fair job.

There is and it's not experimental. Lightroom (desktop) does auto-tag already. Try searching for a keyword that you did not apply yourself.

Oh, neat! Thank you.
Let me rephrase it then. It would be cool to have those tags as suggestions and I would choose which ones to keep, even more so if I could do that for multiple photos at once.

Why would it be helpful if the search just works? Because then those chosen ones would be present in the exported photos as meta tags.

I would like to be able to easily search or filter for images that have no keywords.

Hi Todd,

your answer is valid for LR Classic, I guess.

If you have a way for LR Cloud, then I am interested as well.

Best regards

To be clear... you are talking about Lightroom Desktop not Lightroom Classic, is that correct? If so, I will merge your post to another with the same request so your vote is added to the others who want this feature.

Lr CC has this feature. Enter any word in the "Search All Photos" box at the top. Lr AI will attempt to find photos matching it. It's not wholly accurate, but it works.

 

For example; sailboats in not one of my keywords, but if I enter "sailboat" all my photos with sailboats are displayed.

 

Knowing this feature, I've gotten used to not entering object keywords like "flower", or even "river" for example.  And I just use keywords for events and activities.
