The new Filter Panel allows you to filter or sort the images in the folder based on categories of criteria such as File Type, Labels, Ratings, Keywords, Date Created, Date Modified, Orientation, Aspect Ratio, ISO speed, Serial Number and Copyright. Once you click on an individual criteria under one of these categories, such as JPEG under File Type, a checkmark is placed next to the criteria name and the Content Panel contains only images that match that criteria. As you continue to checkmark criteria, the display will dynamically update. As you can see in the sample screenshot, I have ellimated the JPEG File thumbnails from the display by only placing a checkmark by Photoshop Document. To return to the original folder contents, just click the Clear Filter button at the bottom of the panel.
Preview and Metadata Panel
Click on a thumbnail for one of the images in your folder to select that image and then click on the Metadata Panel to update the panel information. You will see a preview of your image in the Preview Panel which is above the Metadata Panel and a list of all the metadata information for the selected image in the Metadata Panel. Of course, the information that is displayed in this panel will be different for each image. For you photographers, the top of the Metadata Panel has a display similar to the back display of your digital camera.
You will use the Keywords Panel to assign keywords to your images. As you can see, you have a few Keyword Sets to get you started. But you will want to add your own. To add a new Keyword Set to the list, use the pop-up menu at the left of the panel. It's hard to see, but it is there. Once you choose New Keyword Set from the menu, you will see a new line added to the list with your cursor waiting for you to give the new set a name. To assign a new Keyword to an existing set, simply right click on the name of the set and choose New Keyword. Finally, to assign a keyword to your selected image, simply click the box next to that keyword.
