    LR4 Filter With Multiple Keywords

    I'm playing with LR4 and have a question about keywords and filtering by keyword.

    Lets say I have 1000 images of airplanes all tagged with the keyword "Airplane", some of which are tagged with "Underwater" and/or Tuscon.

    I can select "Airplane" as a filter... or Tucson or Underwater... but is there a simple way to filter by more than one keyword so I can quickly find that one underwater picture of an airplane?

    I suppose I can filter by one keyword, move them to collection, then filter again by one of the other two keywords, move that subset to another collection and so on... but that approach seems a bit convoluted.

    The Find tool would work, but is there another way?

    Thanks

    Put a comma between key words and select contains all option. e.g. airplane,underwater,tuscon will select only photographs containing all those key words.

    Aha! not a great deal of help but at least I encouraged you to find the missing step.

    Sometimes all it takes is someone to point in the right direction and not (necessarily) to lead the way.... thanks again
