Googled around, couldn't find an answer to this specific question - the issue never came up until I added network attached storage. In Lightroom 4.4, is it possible to import (I'm using add to catalog, if it matters) from a network attached drive by specifying keywords? For example, recently I copied all of my old CD/DVD archives - digital and film/print scans - to a NAS drive. These are photos I need access to only occasionally, so I don't want to import copies of all the files to my main PC HD. I've used Windows 7 Explorer to add the basic keywords. I know LR can read these in the keywords in the Library and Develop modules. But I'm not seeing any way to display or select by keyword via the Import options. Do I need to import (add to catalog, to minimize space on the main HD) before I can access keywords via the Library module? So far it's looking like I need to repeat all the work I've already done by adding keywords outside of Lightroom, by sifting through hundreds or thousands of photos just to import the handful I want to work on. Otherwise I'll need to import them all, then delete from the catalog all the photos I don't plan to work on. The only alternative I can think of is to use Explorer or other viewer to use keywords to select the few photos I want, then open them to LR via Explorer.
