    Keywording in Lightroom

    Hi
    I just started to try Adobe Lightroom 2.0 and I find its keywording feature pretty useful.
    However, I have a small question for Lightroom users:

    Does the keyword(s) applied to a photo will stay with it.. I know that if I change the metadata, its gonna stay even if I copy the photo to another computer.
    So does the keywords will show up if I copy the pic to another computer and try to find it within Lightroom ?
    Because I don't want to go over the process of keywording if I eventually format my computer.

    Thx

    When you export from LR you can chose to 'minimise the metadata' or [presumably] leave it complete.

    But you must explicitly export from LR, not just copy the file.

    oh right,
    so if I use Export from LR, another computer with LR will be able to read the keywords, rating, flags and colours markings ?

    thanks

    Yes, that should work.

    You could also consider 'Export as a Catalog' -- depends on how many pix you have.

    Look under the file menu for the various options.
