    A week ago I came back from Red Sea with ~200 photos. It is quite a big collection of images to process, cataloguing and upload to Flickr, the real problem is taxonomy, in case you add any. So I started to look for something to speedup my work in Adobe Lightroom. After 5 minutes of googling I found 120k list of species for lightroom, for 99$.
    IMHO, it is an illegitimate use of public databases like ITIS or Catalogue of Life. They just harvested the free database (created by scientist and enthusiasts from all over the world), organized it in tab indented text file and asked for it 99$. :idk: Sound like a robbery to me. So I decided to get my hand dirty and create my own taxonomic tree. Maybe it is not that comprehensive and sure I missed stuff but it is free and you can build the list in the way YOU want.

    If you are interested in downloading or learning how to create your own taxonomy tree for lightroom visit my tutorial page http://kreuzerkrieg.dyndns.info/Marine_Life_Taxonomy_for_Adobe_Lightroom.htm

    UPD: Somehow I managed to miss all marine mammals. Fixed now. In addition I bounded the SQL to Animalia kingdom, I guess no one is interested in algae taxonomy for his/her Lightroom :) Another new thing, all common names are treated as keyword synonyms, it is searcheable, it will show up when you export metadata and the common name parsing is more accurate, hope there is no more duplicates.

    Just installed the list and started using it to add keywords to my photos, I am unable to find the listings for slugs and nudibranchs ( Mollusca, Gastropoda, Opisthobranchia etc.).

    Will you be adding them at some stage?

    jands@It should be there, at least Bivalvia and Cephalopoda, since I used it in my taggings, checking now...
    Are you sure you have downloaded the latest version of file?
