Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Searching for autotagged photos, part of Lightroom CC First Look.
- [Instructor] Hands down, one of the most amazing features in Lightroom CC is its ability to auto tag your photos based on what's in them. That means that you can search for your photos based on content, even if you've never taken the time to keyword tag them. Let's give it a try here. Here we're looking at all the photos that I've added to Lightroom CC. I'm going to go up to the search box at the top of the screen and click there, and I'm going to type in a query. Let's say that I want to see all the photos that contain food.
I'll type food and press enter or return, and there are the results, just what I was looking for. From here, I might select one of these photos to edit or to share. Let's clear this search and try another one. This time, I want to search for all photos that have water in them, so I'll type water, and enter or return. And there are the results, and all these photos do have water in them, and none of these photos have keyword tags.
If you want to refine the search results further, you can click this icon, and that drops down some attributes that you can use to refine the search. Now I haven't added any star ratings to photos, but if I had, I could come over here and tell Lightroom that I wanted to see only water photos to which I'd added five stars, or I could come to this drop down menu and ask to see only photos that were shot with the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, and that's only one photo.
And I can add to that, now I want to see photos taken with the Apple iPhone 6 as well. And there's one more. And then to reset those results, I'll click the reset button here, and to clear the search, I'll click this blue button. So I think you can see how, really powerful this feature is, and how it can save you so much time when you're trying to find that one photo among the many that you'll be bringing in to Lightroom CC.
