Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Searching the Photos library, part of Learning Photos for OS X.
- I'm gonna take a look at search for Photos for OS X.…And I'll tell you right up front:…Some things it'll search on,…some things it won't.…Let's start with the things that it will.…Keywords, that's one of them.…So if I go up here and I enter the keyword,…oh, let's say, fall...…I was gonna start entering fall color…and look at that,…before I even finished it,…keyword fall color, all I have to do is click on that.…
Let's do Command i here…so we can take a look at what's going on…and sure enough, there is the keyword…fall color, right there, and Photos found it.…So that's one thing it'll search on.…It will also search on a description.…Let me enter "North" here.…Yep, I have "North" in a description,…click on the image, do Command i,…and we will see the description:…View from the North End of Mono Lake.…
OK, yeah, got a little head of steam here going.…Go ahead and close that right now.…We'll also search on the title.…So if I enter the word "blue" here,…yes, there's a title.…Click on that image,…do Command i,…and we see the title "Blue sky with fall color."…
