    Hello,

    I'm trying to figure out how to add IPTC Keywords (as opposed to Spotlight Comments, which doesn't embed the data with the file, i.e. if I opened the file in Windows the keywords wouldn't be there, right?) via a plugin for Automater. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    I basically want the keywords to remain intact for when I boot into Windows and use Bridge / Photoshop.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    This may not be the response you want, but yes: if you have Aperture installed you can (see attachment)

    Thanks for your reply robbie, unfortunately that won't work for me. :( I'm starting to get the gist this isn't possible without a third-party product installed, ouch.
