Is this the same thing?

Hi,

they're both doing the same thing or are they different?

They are different. Remember that 'Labels' are unique to PSu and are stored in the catalog. They are always hierarchical. 'Keywords' are written into the XMP and are compliant with appropriate standards.

'Also assign its parents' controls whether all of the higher 'nodes' in the hierarchy of an assigned label are also assigned in the catalog.

'Include all parent level labels as keywords' controls whether higher 'nodes' are written as keywords in the XMP, even if 'Also assign its parents' (as labels) is set to 'No'.

After 8 months with PSU I still don't really know what to think about it. (fine or bad)
But why do you mean they are always hierarchical? I think "Label" is only top level "Keyword'

When you look at the left hand explorer panel, with it set to "categories", you are looking at PSU labels. You will see they are hierarchical - just like when you look Windows file explorer and see your heirarchical Windows folder structure.

PSU labels are part of the metadata PSU stores in it's catalogue (the PSU database). Labels can get converted to keywords when writing the metadata to the files, but this is rather too big an area to cover here.

I recommend reading the PSU cataloging help PDF, accessible from the PSU help menu, as these topics are fairly central to a lot of what PSU does and it's "raison d'etre" and I'm sure it will help you to "get" PSU if you understand something of this area (I wouldn't worry at this stage about the many subtleties that PSU's power permits, just the basic concepts).
