Search and filter photos
Aside from searching photos by metadata and keywords, Lightroom can also find and display photos based on the
objects in them. For example, you can quickly search for all photos that have “flowers” or “cars” in them. Adobe Sensei
is a new and developing tech that uses the power of machine learning to automatically apply searchable keywords. To
learn more about this exciting new technology, please visit Adobe Sensei.
To search photos:
1. In the Search bar, type a search term. For example,
with the Winter Animals collection, you might type
“bison” (Figure 24).
The results are presented in the Photo Grid, Square
Grid view, or in the Detail view.
In this particular case, the keyword “bison” was not
applied to the images but rather was automatically
generated by Adobe Sensei technology.
To filter photos:
1. Click the lter icon next to the Search bar (Figure 25) to quickly lter photos by:
• Ratings Use the star icons to view photos rated at, or higher than, a certain star rating (Figure 25).
• Flags Select agged, rejected, or unagged.
• Keywords Use the drop-down menu to choose from a list of available terms.
• Cameras Filter by camera used to shoot the photos.
• Location Filter by geotags applied to the photos.
