Bridge search multiple folders for keywords?

In Photoshop Elements you can add Keywords to photos from many different folders on your PC. When you search for specific keywords it displays the results irrespective of which folder they are in.

We need a photo organiser for our business and Bridge seemed to be the answer BUT. From what I can see to find images with the required Keyword you have to search folder by folder for images that have that particular keyword. If you try searching from the top folder down with a particular keyword, the result is nil.

Surely I am doing something wrong. Surely I am not the only one that wants to search for images with a specific Keyword spread across multiple folders.

Can someone point me in the right direct, please

Use Find and check the box for Non-indexed files. Bridge won't find anything unless a folder has been indexed.

Excellent, thank you. Works great, just what I wanted.

If I may ask another question. If multiple users of Bridge access the same image database, are the Keywords selected on images by each user, common for all users. Or does each user have to allocate their own Keywords. I hope this is not a silly question.

Thank you

I am only able to search on Filename and Keywords.  I can add keywords to the search criteria from the Keywords Panel.  However, the advanced search option only shows filename as the available criteria on the drop down - I am not able to change the Criteria or the "Contains" drop down.  

 

Is this correct - one of the help files implies that you are only able to search filename and keywords.  I would like to search other metadata,

This has been covered in numerous threads here. There is a bug for some Windows users that affects dropdown menus. Use the arrow keys to move through the menu. We have no idea when Adobe will fix this.

Thanks for the info.. yes , I was able to use the left arrow to scroll through. It is a fairly limited set of metadata e.g. does not include the IPTC core metadata values.  Is that is what is expected.
