ThumbsPlus can automatically generate keywords for images when making thumbnails. This dialog tab allows you to control the automatic keyword generation settings.

 

Complete file name. Assigns a keyword based on the file name of each image.

 

File type. Assigns a keyword based on the file type of each file (i.e., .JPG).

 

Words in file name. Assigns a keyword based on each word in the file name of each image.

 

Words in file name (ignore numbers). Assigns a keyword based on each word in the file name (ignoring any embedded numeric characters) of each image.

 

Folder names in path. Assigns a keyword based on each folder name in the path name of each image.

 

Words in folder names. Assigns a keyword based on each word in each folder name in the path name of each image.

 

Attributes (color, etc.). Assigns a keyword for color and encoding attributes of the file; for example: raster, vector, palette, RGB, grayscale.

 

IPTC keywords. JPEG and TIFF images can have IPTC/NAA keywords already in them. Selecting this option will cause those keywords to be automatically copied to the ThumbsPlus database.

 

Image Comment. Assigns keywords based on each word in the comments residing in each image (for types that support image comments).

 

IPTC Caption. Assigns keywords based on each word in the comments residing in the IPTC caption.

 

EXIF User Comment. Assigns keywords based on each word in the EXIF User Comment.

 

 

Create drop-down lists for keywords. You can elect whether or not ThumbsPlus generates drop-down lists of available keywords when finding or assigning keywords. It's especially useful to turn this option off if you have thousands of keywords – this speeds up both the assigning and lookup operations.
