Saving Your Search Results

When you perform a search using the Filter HUD, you can save your results in several ways. You can create a new Smart Album that locates images that match the search criteria. You can also save the search results themselves in a new album, book album, Light Table album, slideshow album, MobileMe album, Flickr album, Facebook album, Smart Web Page Album, webpage album, or web journal album.

To create a Smart Album based on the search criteria
  1. Use the Filter HUD to search for images based on specified criteria.

  2. In the Filter HUD, click the New Smart Album button.

    A new, untitled Smart Album appears in the Library inspector.

  3. Enter a name for the Smart Album, then press Return.

When you add images to a project or the library that match the search criteria, they are automatically added to the Smart Album.

For more information, see Grouping Images with Smart Albums.
