Searching by Adjustments

You can search for and identify images based on the type of adjustment that has been applied to them, as well as which RAW decoding version was used to render the image. To search for images based on a specific adjustment, you use the Adjustments search options. You can also search for images that do not have a specific type of adjustment applied to them.
