Searching by Import Session

You can locate images that were imported at a specific time or on a specific date. Aperture keeps track of your import sessions and can identify images that were imported at the same time. To search for images based on their import session, you use the Import Session search options. You can also search for images that were not imported during a specific import session or range of sessions.
