I'd value an in-depth look at the use of keywords in Capture One. I know how to set up keyword libraries, and how to create and apply hierarchical keywords. But what I find difficult is how to use the keywords to retrieve images when I want them. So for instance I take a lot of nature and wildlife photos, and I have applied keywords to them tagging them with the species name. So I might have images taken on different occasions over several years tagged with the keywords insect>butterfly>spotted wood butterfly, for example. My difficulty is using the filter tool to find those images again when I want them.
It was easier in Media Pro, because you could apply and filter keywords in the same tool. But in Capture One, you apply the keywords in one tool, and you filter them in another, where they are not found in the same logical layout at all.
I think the keywording facility in Capture One needs improving, but for now I would value a tutorial or webinar on how to get the best out of the existing system. (And one based on a catalog with a lot of images in it! It would be easy enough for a catalog with a small number of images and keywords, but what I need to understand is how to cope when there are thousands of keywords and tens of thousands of images.)
