Selecting by more than on criteria
« on: November 13, 2007, 12:32:36 AM »
Is there a way to select images in the contact sheet by multiple criteria linked with a logical OR ?
I want to select all images with a rating 3 an above and additional all images (regardless of rating) with a certain keyword.

I do it now with multiple saved selections but this is – beside from being slow – a static selection (the name of the images are saved in the selection). I need a dynamic selection.

Any suggestions ?

Use the filter widgets at the bottom of the Contact Sheet.  Turn off 0,1,2 Star Ratings which will display Star Ratings 3 and up.  Then use the Find dialog to find your keyword.  You'll be left with the selection that matches the keyword you entered.

Hi Kirk

There are images with only 2 stars that have the corresponding keyword.

I need something like:
SELECT all images WHERE StarRating >= 3 OR Keyword = ”MyKey”.

I have no solution for you.
