I have been using Lr for about 6 months, I keyworded most of the photos, still have more to do. On some photos I used multiple keywords, and was wondering if I could search for more than one at a time. For example, I am looking for a bird in winter in a tree in the snow, the keywords I have are; bird, winter, snow and tree, can  I search for photos that have all four keywords?

dj_paigeDo you mean Column 1 and 2 of the Metadata?  I don't know of any columns in the filter bar.

This was helpful... In the new versions of Lightroom I am not seeing the ability to add columns? The little drop down menu icon is not something I am seeing. How do you Add Column?
