Can I filter by date?

Post by blizeH »

Hi, I'd like to show all of my photos from various folders in one view (no problem there, just right click and click 'Show all files (recursive)'.

But I'd like to only see photos taken within a particular year. Is there a way to just view photos from 2018 for example? Thanks :)

I've tried clicking Tools -> Search and entering the details there (ie. EXIF: Taken date is between 01/01/2018 and 31/12/2018) and it returns 0 photos :(

Further to this, if I just have a condition of all photos taken after 01/01/2015 it only returns one photo

Currently no easy way (need to be added)
A workaround is to use 'Search'

Your photos have 'EXIF: Date Taken'?

Thanks, unfortunately the search only brings back one photo, so not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Under each thumbnail I've set it to show the EXIF: Date Taken and it appears on pretty much all of them so I assume it's set correctly - I posted another thread about another issue so maybe this is linked, I'll email you now, thanks :)
