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:

And the back (main) camera: Here are screenshots of the settings for the front and back.
