Hello, Jeff, can you elaborate? How do you image it working

You can use the filter panel in Bridge, and even only display images without keywords ...

But since an image can have several keywords, you need to explain what you are after, so that we can better help you...
Sort can work with elements that have a value, like the number of stars, the resolution, I do not see how it would work with keywords.

Hi Jeff,

Bridge has the ability in the Content panel to sort by keyword. Go to View> Sort> By Keywords. In the List view, you can also change the Sort criteria by clicking on the column title (you should see a directional icon indicating Ascending/Descending order).

With multiple keywords, the list of keywords for a single file auto sort, so the Content panel sort of files is based starting on the first keyword and continuing until a distinct order is found (ie. ascending "1, New Mexico" sorts before "1, New York" before "2, Arizona").
