    OK I can't figure out how to do this. Even with help I can't find any way to do this. In the previous iPhoto it was simple. '08 I can't figure out how to do it.

    PS- Yes I opened the keyword window and selected the keyword I wanted after highlighting everything. It does nothing.

    Intuitive my butt. :(

    Have you tried selecting the photos, and then dragging them onto the keyword in the bottom left corner? I haven't got iLife 08 yet but this always worked before.

    I just tried selecting a bunch of photos and adding keywords via the keyword window. It worked and they all received the keywords I selected. What view are you trying to do this in? I was able to it in event view without issue.

    I've just been having similar problems.

    Click, View > Keywords, so they appear below your photos, now, just as you can edit a title below a photo and a rating below the title, click below the rating and you'll have a box, start typing and it'll try guess which keyword you were after.

    You can also set a keyword keyboard command from the, Window > Show Keywords, dialog. Drag a keyword to the top of it and it'll be given a letter. Click that letter when you select multiple photos to tag.
