Dear all, I'm looking to find a feature permitting to select some file in a folder. For example, a wedding folder containing 5.000 files, I need to extract a list of 100 files (bride choose the picture to edit and make the list). Lightroom allowed it, typing a text as: 0001 0025 0158 1256  in text => name file => contain .... Lr extracts only the files with the same name wrote..... Bridge too?

Thank you for answering

 

Alex

I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Do you want to select and move these files? Make a collection? Just find them?

I have some scripts available that might help if I knew what you wanted.

Bridge has the Edit > Find command, however you need to add a separate entry for each filename to isolate.

 

A script could use a regular expression search with a single input string for multiple filename parts with a | pipe character separator 0001|0025|0158|1256 and create a collection.

I actually have a script for finding multiple items, its MUCH easier to handle a list that way than enter search terms one by one. If the OP comes back to explain...
