Chapter 3. Organizing Photos > Smart album ideas

Smart album ideas

  • By matching on ratings, you can easily create a Favorites smart album that contains just your top-rated photos.

  • By looking for the filename extensions .avi, .mov, and .mpg at the end of an Any Text or Filename criterion (for some reason, Filename doesn't work for me, even though it should), you can create a smart album of movies.

  • My camera always names photos IMG_0000.JPG, so by creating a smart album that looks for photos whose filenames don't include “IMG”, I can collect many photos sent to me by other people with different cameras.

  • To create an album that contains all the photos of a certain person, use the Any Text criterion matching that person's name. It won't be perfect, but if you give your photos descriptive titles or comments, it's a good start.

✓ Tip

  • You can't remove photos from a smart album manually; the only way to take them out is to change either the photo or the criteria so they no longer match.
