Select photos that have been Enhanced within a Smart Collection.

LRC seems to know that an image has been Enhanced when you try to Enhance a second time. Be nice to have the indicator exposed in the smart collections selection criteria.

Anyone have a way to do this?

I believe Lightroom adds 'Enhanced' to the name of the resulting file, doesn't it?

Thank you Johan, thats a good point, but I had hopes that there was something more like a directly testable attribute. 

I have descriptive names on many image files. 

 I was able to use LrC to rename an Enhanced files name to remove the Enhance text from the name. I was then able to re-Enhance the file again. So they are apparently using the tag in the file name as the attribute. Seems to me it belongs elsewhere. Perhaps something like _Enhanced as a LrC keyword (Thats what I was doing) or a flag in the Metadata, which is the better solution.

I don't think there is a special attribute. Enhanced DNG files are linear RGB files, not raw files. That is how Lightroom sees that it cannot raw-enhance it again, only use super resolution again. I don't think there is a 'flag' or anything like that.

To build on Johan's reply, you could use the Any Filter plugin to find all enhanced .dngs:

Due to inherent limitations of LR, this search is pretty slow compared to normal searching.

Thanks John, Very nice plugin you have there. Will pick one up. But I guess I still have a "personal" thing about a something thats suppose to be a nondistructive tool, mucking with my files names. 

 

Thank you again!

This is true. Why is it called non destructive and it changes file names?

It impacts my spreadsheet/Python tools I use to collect disk stats.  I guess I understand why.... its a whole new file as opposed to a reference to changes in the Adobe database. Otherwise it could collide with the original file name if it was a DNG?.... But it eats up a lot of character space in the filename. Would rather a sequence number?... I dont know, "-Enhance" just seems excessive.

 

Thank you for the reply.
