Well, I took a chance and purchased the Image Info Toolkit and the CV Keyword catalog with a year of updates to the catalog.  I'm hoping this will save me a lot of time in building my own keyword database and kewording my images.  It's not the friendliest application in the world, but I am able to copy and paste the keywords into the File Info dialog of my RAW files easily, which is what I really need it for.

Peter, if you are familiar with this product and have any advice on it, please let me know.  I haven't received the CV catalog yet...takes up to 24 hours.  Thanks.

I know David, we've worked together on UPDIG (www.updig.org).

I was hoping it could hook onto iView for seamless integration, but it's my understanding that it can't.

Personally, about all I can really manage is to add the few keywords to image files that helps me find them.  I think IIT is a good tool to prepare images for stock sales through a searchable database.

Well, I'm going to go ahead and give the CV catalog a try.  It does appear to have some concept keywords as well.  At least this way I will be starting with a controlled vocabulary; which was really my biggest concern.  Hopefully Blue Box will enhance it to work more seemlessly with Bridge and iView.  However, I am able to copy and paste into the iView keywords field as well.  My hope is that I will be doing most of my keywording before the DNG conversion using Bridge.  I didn't have a problem copying and pasting entire sets of keyword heirarchies from to either application.  That went fairly quick.

By the way Peter, thanks for the link to UPDIG.org.  A lot of good information there.
