I really do like the new search functionality. There are only a few things that are not so nice:
- Indexing on my MacBook worked in no time. Probably that is because I have only the few pictures I’m working on in folders and all others in my Photos library. Fortunately PhotoLab doesn’t try to index these libraries!
But now when I search it seems to find pictures anywhere. I can’t search in one specific folder. So I am still at loss e. g. to find all ISO 400 pictures in my import folder because it will find such pictures also at other places.
No search for cameras and lenses. Often I want to search, or rather filter, for only one lens or camera type since I want to apply a specific correction on these pictures. Not possible at the moment.
Multiple search criteria can be added. But the input field is rather small and then I have to type blindly.
I can add “Thursday” (or “Donnerstag” in my native language) as a search criterion which feels very natural. Today is Wednesday, October 24. When I enter “Thursday” though it searches for pictures with a shot date of tomorrow, October 25. Week days should search in the past week, not in the coming week.
All in all I feel this feature was made in a rush. Beta testers should have easily been able to find these issue. It took me only one hour.
