Hi

Can anyone tell me if it possible to search for images which are NOT in a collection?

I think I have edited some images from a collection in Photoshop - these are then automatically saved as a .psd 'edit' - but I dont think they are then added to the collection. Hence they get missed when I am exporting out of a collection.

I am not used to 'smart' collections - maybe this is where they come in?

But at the moment I would be grateful for an answer to my original question

Thanks

Create a Smart Collection with at least this criteria:
{Collection}{doesn't contain}{a e i o u} (vowels separated by spaces)

Collection names presumably contain phrases with at least one of the vowels.
 
Cletus,

Could you clarify something please... I take it being in a smart collection, doesn't count as being in a collection for this purpose.
 
Great! - took a bit of working out as to where to find the category option (collection) - but works fine - Thanks!!

Smart collections are dynamic and do not exist in the database as anything other than a set of conditions. And so you can't use a smart collection to search for another smart collection.
