Forum Question: Search Within iPhoto

Hi Gary,

I always try to tag my photos within iPhoto to help with details. However, whenever I use the search function at the bottom of the iPhoto screen, I can never seem to locate a particular photo. It only seems to find photos by their event titles. Do you know how iPhoto searches for information and how I could tags photos for successful searches in the future?

As always thank you for your sage advice.

    iPhoto 09? In iPhoto 09, you can change the search box at the bottom to All, Date, Keyword and Rating. Having you been setting keywords for your photos? If so, then if you set it to keyword and click in the search box, you see a set of buttons with each keyword in it. Then click a button to select a keyword.

    I have so many keywords that only the last 100 or so fit on the screen. It’s very annoying!
