I have an Automator service that adds selected photos to iPhoto. I would like it to also add a specific keyword to these photos.
How can I do this?
I found this question, but the only answer does not set the keywords via automator.

If you are using the “Import to iPhoto” Automator action, that returns a list of iPhoto photos you can process. Just add an “Applescript” action after your import action with the following script:
tell application "iPhoto" repeat with importedPhoto in (input as list) select importedPhoto assign keyword string "your keyword" end repeat end tell
– that should do the trick.
