Q: how to Delete Keywords From Photos in Lightroom?

A: It’s not obvious, if you highlight the wrong keywords in the Keywording box and deleting them doesn’t work. Why? Because Adobe decided not to provide it. The solution, instead, is to use the keyword list

  • Select all the photos that you want to remove the keywords.

Lightroom: Photos With Wrong Keyword

Lightroom: Photos With Wrong Keyword

As you can see, this is not a dog! Duh! It’s a cat, wrong keyword.

  • Look in the Keyword List, and remove the check mark of the wrong keyword

Lightroom: Remove keywords from photo

Lightroom: Remove keywords from photo

Then you can apply the “right” keywords.
