Perform complex keyword searches in iPhoto 5.0.2
Authored by: cudaboy_71 on Apr 20, '05 12:20:23PM

definitely worth the update. the old behavior has made the keywords i spent so long setting up virtually useless to me.

the A & B keyword examples in the OP got a little confusing. here's a real-world example of how i use it and why the new behavior is the RIGHT behavior ;)

i store my company's products in iPhoto. i have each photo keyworded with (no less than) the manufacturer and the type of equipment it is.

so, in the past when i wanted to find a belt sander by Acme, the keyword search results showed ALL belt sanders and ALL products by Acme.

Now, with the 'AND' modifier it properly shows all the Acme Belt sander photos i have in the results.

FWIW, you can still get the old 'OR' behavior by holding shift....the keyword text becomes highlighted to indicate 'OR' status. But, you cannot mix and match, for example Acme OR Makita AND Belt Sander. too bad...maybe something for 5.03.

if it aint broke, break it!
