With a couple of thousand photos in iPhoto finding the photos I'm looking for can be tough. Features like Faces help, but sometimes I need something a little more powerful.
In this tutorial you will learn how to use the Smart Albums feature in Apple's iPhoto to quickly find and sort pictures by "conditions." Conditions can be who is in a photo, when the photo was taken or even which camera was used to take the photo. The best part is these albums will automatically update themselves as you add more photos!
To follow along with this tutorial you will need a copy of iPhoto '11, a Mac, and some photos to sort. iPhoto '09 users might also find this video helpful although some of sets might be slightly different. This video build on what we learned in the iPhoto Organization Part 1 – Faces and the iPhoto Organization Part 2 – Sorting Pets with Keywords videos.
