    I'm wondering if something is possible in iphoto, either natively or with add ons. What I'd like to do is have heirarchies of keywords, for example:

    I. Sports
    A) Baseball
    B) Football

    So, when I select a photo to have the keyword "baseball" it also has the keyword "sports." Is this possible? Doesn't seem to be... at least without add ons. Thanks!

    I had the same problem (except I wanted family >kids >"names"). I don't think you can establish a heirarchy among the keywords, but, using your example you could assign all the pics with a keyword of "sports" and then give comments of "baseball" and football." Create a smart album to include only photos with the "sports" keyword, and then filter for either baseball or football comments. The batch change function makes it real easy to add comments to several photos at once.

    I know that's not exactly what you want to do, but that's how I'd do it.
