Hello

 

is there a way in LRC to create a smart collection that filters for all images that are part of more than one (or two etc) normal collection, without having to define the names of these?

 

Thanks Thomas

In the Smart Collection dialogbox, select source->Collection->Contains and then type in the text field

 

a e i o u y

 

including the spaces.

 

If the photo is in a smart collection name with a vowel in the name, then this will find them. If you have a collection name that has no vowels, like PS14, this will not be found by this method.

Hi

thanks for reply, but this method I already use. 

My question was related to images in MORE THAN ONE collection.

Background: I sort  my images into certain events per year - but I don't want them to show up in more than one collection - hence I need to search for those which I accidentially put into more then one collection.

I didn't see that feature explicitly described, but here's an extensive blog post from Juliane Kost that might give you some ideas:
