Design to simulate a keyword function similar to Adobe Lightroom

Post

In Adobe Lightroom there is a well developed keyword function that allows for the use of multiple keywords to be assigned by multiple methods to an image. I.e. Florida, alligator,Myaka etc. Typing any or a combination of the terms separated by a comma into a find field finds the specific immage or any others with those keywords assigned. The program also maintains the equivalent of a Filemaker pop-up list to make repeat assigning of the same keywords to repeated images an easy task. I'm designing a filemaker database and I wish to use a list of keywords and repeatedly assign some of them to multiple images in the database. Do I have to have a separate field for each keyword or is there some global method similar to Lightroom which I can use to accomplish the same task? I'm in the design stage, and any bad choices with this problem will reverberate for a long time.
