Categrory Filter with 'NOT' option

Post by PP0815 » Mon Jan 20, 2020 6:19 pm

Hi, I would like to suggest a 'NOT' option in the category filter so I could for example list all images with the category 'PEOPLE' but NOT those that also have the category 'PETER'.

thanks

I was thinking about something similar, but with more relations and multiple words.

For example list all pictures, which have "Summer" OR " Vacation" AND "South-East Asia" but NOT "Bali" NOT "Lombok".

I didn't think about how it could be done UI-wise, and honestly I'm not sure how often I'd use it. Atm, it looks like a nice to have feature for me.

PP0815:
For NOT condition, use ALT key (OS= Microsoft)
People Alt-Peter

unqltango : ( "Summer" OR " Vacation" AND "South-East Asia" but NOT "Bali" NOT "Lombok" )

For AND feature, use "match, All" ,
for OR, Use CTRL key, but it's difficult or impossible to build complex requests

Sometimes, I use another software (Fastphototagger) for this purpose :
( "AND"= boxes in the same line, "OR" = boxes in different lines)
