Basically - I use the ProStock Master which gives me a first cut (generates 20-30 keywords from initial entry of 2-3 words). Then I remove the ones I consider irrelevant - and go through all keywords with Image Keyworder (trial version so far). It appears to produce more detailed keywords, but is a pain to use when starting w/o any keywords (that's why ProStock Master is soooooo convenient to give me the first cut in just few seconds).

Anyone has any suggestions ?

Im using Itag, which is fabulous. I had that program for a year on my computer but i didn't spent enough time to play with  program. Couple month ago I get  few advice  how to use it,  from then I spending far less time for keywording

Thanks - but does this program actually generate keywords ? I am not interested in a program where I have to come up with and type all keywords myself - I can do it in Photoshop if I want to in conjunction with some file data templates. What ProStock Master does - is you provide couple of words, and it generates a whole bunch of possibly related keywords. The result needs to be edited a bit - but is highly useful as input to Image Keyworder, where you provide the program with a word and it lists all associated words which can be then added as keywords. I was just wondering if anyone knows any similar programs.

Writing data into JPEG file is easy - I can do it myself w/o any external software (except the one I would write for this purpose if nothing was available). Generating keywords is not. Currently I have a solution - but maybe there are better ways ?

Canstock suggests keywords according to the ones you've entered, it's useful.

Paxxion is developing a tool for that too, but it's only at test.

Canstock is a site (link at right), when you upload you can get keywords suggestions based on the ones you've typed in (but sometimes the results are not good, you have to be careful).

Paxxion is another site, but their tool isn't ready yet. 

Also this site may help, someone posted it here some time ago:

It's both lighting and edition, and with good lighting edition is just a small touch.  There have been some threads about this at the forum, do a search and you'll find tyhem.
