Searching for Photos

When you first start importing photos into Elements, it's easy enough to find the batch of photos you're looking for by using the Timeline and the Folder Location panel (Figure 8-2). Once you have a few months worth of photos stored up, though, you'll find it much easier to locate, say, that batch of pictures you took at a picnic last summer if you diligently assign tags to all or most of your photos. Elements makes it very easy to find tagged photos. Still, if you decide that there's just not enough time in your current lifetime to follow a comprehensive tagging system, then you'll be pleased to hear that Elements gives you another way to root out buried picturessearching by a picture's metadata (automatically saved photo stats with info on things like aperture setting and exposure). This section covers both.
