Aperture 2.0 provides you with some excellent new filtering tools. There's one in particular that I wanted to show you because I think it's so exciting in that now you can actually search by adjustment, and what I mean by that, image adjustment, something that you've done to your photographs and you want to find all the examples of that type of adjustment in your library. I'm going to start by going to All Photos right here, because that way I can look in my whole Aperture library, and I'll go up here and right next to the search field here is this little button, and we're going to click on that, and that brings up our Query HUD.
Now what I want to do is I want to add search by adjustments, and that's under the plus sign there, and I'll just check on that, and I'm going to change my criteria to any match, and we're going to take rating off because we don't need that, and what I'd like to find are any of the shots in my library that I've used the Monochrome Mixer for my black and white shots. So I'll go, adjustments includes, and then I'll pick here, Monochrome Mixer, and then I'm actually going to create a new album with these current images, so I'll just click on that, and I get a new album here, and I'll just give it a title.
I'll call it Monochromes, and we'll just add it right here. Now, as I look through here, we have stacks, so if I collapse these stacks, we start out with an original color photo, but the search was able to go into those stacks and find examples where I've used the Monochrome Mixer, and I can find all the shots that I've converted to black and white or some sort of sepia by using the search by adjustments query.
This is very powerful and there's all sorts of things you can do with it. It's a new feature in Aperture 2.0, and I think you'll find a lot of uses for it once you start playing around with it.
