iOS 4.1: iPhoto Smart Albums for iPhone 4 Apps
With the release of iOS 4.1, Apple has made it easy to create smart albums containing our iPhone 4 photos. This hint shows you what settings to use to create smart albums for your iPhones front and back camera photos.

Note: This hint will only apply to photos taken on an iPhone running iOS 4.1 or higher, and requires you to be using iPhoto '09 or newer.

This is a revisit of my previous hint for making a smart album in iPhoto to keep track of only your new iPhone 4 photos. With the release of iOS 4.1, apple has changed the camera model to 'Apple iPhone 4' making it much easier to filter these photos into smart albums. In addition to that, we can use the camera aperture metadata to filter between front and back camera photos.

The front (FaceTime) camera:
  • iPhone 4 Front Camera Smart Album:
  • Match - all - of the following conditions:
  • Camera Model - is - Apple iPhone 4
  • Aperture - is less than 2.6
And the back (main) camera:
  • iPhone 4 Back Camera Smart Album:
  • Match - all - of the following conditions:
  • Camera Model - is - Apple iPhone 4
  • Aperture - is greater than 2.6
Here are screenshots of the settings for the front and back.

iPhone 4 does not show as an option for Versions of iPhoto before iPhoto '09.

Using iPhoto '08 version 7.1.5 you can select iPhone 4 only pictures using the flash is not unknown tag, however the Aperture option kills the Smart Folder completely.

NOTE: This hint requires you to be using iPhoto '09 or newer. Sorry, I didn't realize this would not work on older versions of iPhoto.

SIDE NOTE: I have tested this with iOS 4.2 photos and it continues to work.

In order for you to see "Apple iPhone 4" as an option, you must have photos that were taken after you upgraded to iOS 4.1. If the photos were taken in iOS 4.0-4.0.2 they will be tagged as "Apple iPhone".

Also, third party camera apps from the App Store do not attach the necessary information to the photos.

Hopefully this clarifies more.

If you have iPhoto v 8.1.2 (aka iPhoto 09) it can be very useful to bring up the meta data panel
Menu "Photos -> Show Extended Photo Info"
