It would be convenient to be able to filter on date picture taken or date picture last modified

To be more specific. I want to be able to filter by year, month, year and month, or down to the day.

Doesn't that already exist?

I know it's not the same as "filtering", but you could do a search by e.g. "Dec 6 2019" to see the results for that date. Or use the (...) menu > Segmentation > by Year, Month, Day or Hour.

 

Thanks,

Recent added may have nothing to do with the date the image was taken, and also does not help looking for older pictures.

 

However, with that said. Over on the left menu under the recently added is a date filter. Not where I would have looked for it until I went to explore how many entries were in the recently added.

The date search does not work. I tried it...

Also the segments is on Andoid (maybe also iOS); but not on the desktop.

Hi Tim,

 

Fwiw, have you tried entering the date in search field in the format like "December 22 2021"? I've tried this in Lr desktop, and it worked for me. Also, you could use Segmentation on Lr mobile, and filtering "by Date" (that you discovered) in Lightroom desktop.

 

Best regards,

Elmira

Date segments in mobile are not very useful in this case. In addition, I do a lot more work on the desktop, than I do on mobile.

When I search for "feb 2019" I get 1332, "february 2019" I get 1199, "2019-02" I get 1069, while "02-2019" I get 1202, and lastly using the "by date" on the left menu I get 1402. So which is the correct answer?

Looks like in Lr desktop it is the best to use the "By Date" filter on the left panel, that returns the most results :).

Best regards,

Elmira

@Elmira Pendleton 

lmao. So does this count as a bug? Or will you try and spin it as a feature?

Hi Tim, yes, it sounds like a bug in search. We'll investigate.

 

Thank you,

Elmira

Any update? I have 5.5 now, and the numbers in the answers have changed even though I have not added pictures from february 2019 since I started this thread.
