Another way to find photos by date in the Organizer is by Timeline. To show you the Timeline, I'm going to go the Display menu and change back to the default Thumbnail view of the Photo Browser. Then I'll go over to the Window menu and I'm going to enable the Timeline and there it is at the top of the screen. The Timeline is what it says, a Timeline update. It is showing the period from 2005 on the left to 2008 on the right, and these vertical bars here and there in the Timeline represent months in which photographs were taken that are in the Photo Browser.
This comes in really handy, when you have a general idea of a date on which you took a photo, but you are not exactly sure what the date was. So for example, I know wiggly that I was in Santa Fe in the winter of 2005. So if were looking for photos from that trip, I would come over here in the Timeline, click on one of these bars March 2005 or February 2005, and see what photos were there. So I'll try this, I'll go to February 2005, click and you saw the Photo Browser scroll down to display the first photo that I took I February of 2005, which is this one right here. Now, let's look at March 2005, I'll click that bar and you can see the Photo Browser highlighting the first photo that I took in that month, which is this photo in Santa Fe.
If you have photos that you took in earlier years or later years than I represented here in the Timeline, you can click the arrows on the sides of the Timeline to add additional months. And if you want to limit your search to a shorter time period, use the sliders on either sides of the Timeline. So if I wanted to see photos taken only in 2007 for example, I would click on this slider and move it over to this area and the left hand slider and move it over to this area, and that limits the photos displayed in the Photo Browser to those taken in 2007.
So the Timeline can come in handy when you have a general idea of when you have taken some photos. And you just want to get right to that time period.
