Hi. If you are able to use Lightroom in the proper sense you should be able to know how to find images in the Lightroom’s library module. So let’s figure out what is a use case for why should you find images. By the way can I please request you to subscribe to this channel so that you get all the updates that we send. Also it’s a good idea to hit the bell icon so that you get instant notifications when we have new content. Let’s say you went to a trip like Costa Rica and you shot a lot of photographs and you’ve shot toucans, macaws you’ve shot reptiles, you’ve shot amphibians and you want to find images which are sitting in between a catalog of 3000 plus images. Now the easiest way to find images is if you’ve actually been keywording them to actually find them later on. So also it’s important for you to keyword images to understand where this image was shot what kind of a species it is or let’s say if you want to keyword people and call somebody Raj and call somebody Santosh and call somebody something else. You should be able to keyword them otherwise you can find these images. Let’s say you’re doing wedding photography and there’s a new group of people who came to the dias, you want to actually keyword them in order to find this image in between a clutter of so many images. So if you use Lightroom’s library filter you can actually be going ahead and searching for what you want to find. In this case let’s take the text attribute of Lightroom where you go ahead and type let’s say because I have a keyworded some images as a toucan and I go ahead and type this. It’s going to filter out images which had the keyword toucan. This is a very interesting way to find images now keywords are not the only ways to find images. You can actually be able to find images in different perspectives. Let’s say I want to go and find images which were shot using a 70 to 200 millimetre lens. So if you go to the metadata filter of Lightroom it’ll pick up any picture that you actually shot using a 7200 f2.8 kind of an equipment and then you click on this, it’s just going to simply show you a subset of images that belong to that. You’ll go and say none, it is going to remove all these images and it’s going to show you the entire catalog without applying any filter so likewise you can also go ahead and filter out images in Lightroom based on attribute as well. What’s an attribute? Let’s say you have rated images five star and you want to only find five star images or three star images. You can go ahead and select the right star that you want or the appropriate star that you want to find. Let’s say in my case I want to find all my five star images. It’s going to list a plethora of images that I’ve actually starred as my five star images or let’s say I don’t want any star to be selected here. I want to actually go and find only pictures which were labelled red. It’s gonna show me a red coloured label which is right now one image in my huge catalog of 3000 plus images. So please use Lightroom’s filter to filter out images and show you the ones you want. I actually really love to keyword my images because not just helps you how to look at images on the catalog here. It also helps people find your images on the web when you actually go ahead and post these pictures on the Internet so that Google and other search engines can actually find your images as well. Library module of Lightroom is a robust engine and if you want to learn all this in detail please by the Lightroom course especially which delves deeper into the Lightroom Classic C.C. and also teaches you how to handle the develop module along with the library module of Lightroom and the link to this course is in the description below. By the way I hope you’ve already subscribed to this channel, the Toehold TV.
