Hi gang. I'm probably missing something really obvious here. I need to filter my "All Photos" view to only see photos taken after a certain date (let's say 1st November for argument's sake).

I know I can sort All Photos by capture date and then scroll through the list until I get to the first one taken after 1st November, but that feels awkward. I was hoping there was a way to only display images taken after a particular date.

Looking at the filtering bar first, I don't have "capture date" as an option to filter on. Turning to the search bar, the "canned" search options don't include capture date (I assume it would be in the "metadata" subsection). I tried a natural language search of "captured after 1st November 2022" which returned zero results - and there are definitely images there which should match.

Is there a way to do this?

Yeah, easy way actually. On the left, if the section under All Photos is opened up, there's a By Date option. That lets you show by year... and then if you click the arrow it shows months. So you can just select 2022 > November & December to show everything shot in those months.

See? I knew I was missing something simple. Thanks @Victoria Bampton !

Is the "By Date" option capture date, or date added?
"By Date" is capture date order.

"Recently Added" is date added (but only shows the last 5 imports). But there's also an "Import Date" sort option available in the grid.

Just as an aside, does anyone else find it strange that the years are shown in descending order (i.e. reverse chronological order), but the months and days are displayed in ascending order? Every time I open it up I find it annoying ... but maybe it's just me?
