An Early Look At macOS Sierra Photo Searching

A very exciting new feature of the Photos app in macOS Sierra is the ability to search your Photos library for objects. For instance, you can search for 'boat' and it will show you pictures in your library that have a boat. Take a look at how this feature works.

    Truly amazing! Thanks for the sneak peek. I think I will also procrastinate at tagging my photos, something which I started to do, but you know how that goes.

    What a great addition. I too have k's of photos un-tagged. This will certainly make my life much easier. Love Macmost

    Thank you so much Gary...I can't wait to show your video about Photo's in the new Sierra system, to the Seniors I teach. They are going to love this. Keep up the great work. We have all come to love what you do for us. Sharon

    Thanks Gary love your Videos, I also have about 20,000 photos which were all in Events in iPhoto I miss this function if you have any influence with apple please ask them to bring it back, This will be a great search tool but doesn't really help when you have to search so many photos for a specific event
    Thanks again Marisa

    Marisa: Bring back Events? Why? You can just use Albums instead. There's no real difference -- well except that Albums are easier to create and control. And photos could only be in one Event, but they can be in multiple albums, so you have more flexibility if you want it. Just use albums!

    is there any hope we would be able to search for, occasions, birthdays, travel specific countries etc? Thanks, you do an amazing job for us.

    Gwen: you can already search by date and location. Have been able to for a while.
