Searching your photos

Top  Previous  Next

In every new search session window, the default attributes you can search on are as follows:

 

description and comment

focal length

ISO

aperture

shutter speed

 

search02

 

You can add additional attributes by clicking on the Add attribute button.  Here, you can add the following attributes to search on:

 

camera make

camera model

date

exposure program

focal length (in 35mm equivalent)

metering mode

location (see here for more details)

 

Enter the values for the attributes you want to search on, then click on the Search button at the top to start your search.

 

For e.g. say we wanted to search for photos taken with a focal length of between 24mm and 100mm, with ISO values between 100 and 800.  We enter the search values like this:

 

search03

 

click on the Search button, and the results are returned.

 

search04

 

 

Grouping the results

 

You can group the search results to make it easier to locate photos.  In the example above, we search for photos based on focal length and ISO, and 350 photos were returned.  We can group the results by clicking on the grouping attribute in the search window.

 

group01

 

We then select which attributes to group the results by.  Say we want to group the results by focal length, ISO and aperture.

 

group02

 

You can reorder by grouping attribute by clicking and dragging the attribute to the relevant position.  Say we want to group by ISO first, then by focal length and aperture.  We drag the ISO attribute to above the focal length attribute.

 

group03

 

Now when we perform the search, our results are grouped by those 3 attributes.

 

group04

 

Grouping your results also makes it easier to selectively export your photos.
