It would be nice if we had an extra button to show specific tags or not.

If I dont click on SPECIFIC, I get all the picture wuere that person appears.The same for multiple TAGS.

As I indicated, it is possible to construct a search like that now.  In case you are not aware, here is how to do it: Click on the Search button Select the People tab Click on the person you want to show in your search and then add all other tagged people who might appear in photos of that person.  A search list will appear in the bar with the OR operator [/].  In other words, the default will be to search for all photos with any of the listed People in them. Click on the operator between...

I'm not sure if I fully understand your request.  Are you asking for the ability to show all photos with only one person in it?  While I agree with you that it would be desirable to have more sophisticated boolean search capabilities, that would only work well if you are very compulsive with your tagging.  For example, if I only wanted to search for all photos of my daughter, I could construct a search in the Search box for my daughter, but I would also have to exclude the people who are normally in the photos of her, including my wife, son-in-law and my two grandkids.  And this would only work 100%, if every single photo with these family members has been tagged with their name.  Otherwise, the search will present photos of my daughter with other people who have not been tagged in that photo.

 

In any event, if you want to present a feature request to Adobe, you can fill out a form that you can find here.

That is exactly what I would like, the option of choosing ONLY the person tagged without having other persons in the picture. It would be very practical as I have over 100,000 photos.

  1. Click on the Search button
  2. Select the People tab
  3. Click on the person you want to show in your search and then add all other tagged people who might appear in photos of that person.  A search list will appear in the bar with the OR operator [/].  In other words, the default will be to search for all photos with any of the listed People in them.
  4. Click on the operator between each name and a dropdown list will appear.  Choose Exclude [-] for each name.
  5. The search will result in showing only photos of the first person in the list and all photos with any of the other named people in them will not appear.  In other words, you should have a search result of photos containing only the first named person.

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I have been using PSE for many years and did not know this existed. Many thanks.
