An Overview of Searching

In Aperture, you can search for images in multiple ways. You can use the search field and pop-up menu in the Browser to quickly locate images by name or display images by rating, flag status, and color label. You can also use the Filter HUD to perform complex searches for images using a wide variety of criteria, including image name, subject, keyword, photographer, caption or text, date, location, EXIF and IPTC information, applied adjustments, color labels, flagged images, image usage statistics, and more.

In addition to searching for images in the Browser, you can search for images within items in the Library inspector. You can quickly locate faces using the search field in Faces view. You can also quickly find locations assigned to images using the search field in Places view.
