Importing Tags Attached to Photos

A keyword tag, also known as a tag, is an information label that is attached to photos to make them easier to locate. Some tags are automatically attached to a file when you create it, such as name and size, while custom tags are manually attached by the user. You can create your own custom tags with information important to you and attach multiple tags to the same photo for improved organization. When you import photos that already contain tags, you can specify whether you want to retain, rename, delete or remap them. When you import a new tag from an imported photo, it appears in the Keyword Tags palette, where you can use them with other photos.
