The Lightroom team has added new criteria (filters) for Smart Collections including:

• Size (in megapixels). Note: the sub-options include Long Edge, Short Edge, Width, Height, Megapixels, Long Edge Uncropped, Short Edge Uncropped, Width Uncropped, Height Uncropped, Megapixels Uncropped, and Aspect Ratio

• Bit Depth

• Number of color channels

• Color Mode

• Color Profile

• Smart Preview status


Note: the last two options, Smart Preview Status and PNG are also available as Filters.

In addition, Lightroom now remembers your last viewed image in a Collection so when navigating from one collection to another, you’ll be restored to that image upon returning to the Collection.

    Can LR5 still create a Smart Collection based on Keywords?

    I have such a Smart Collection imported from LR4, but when creating a new Smart Collection or a Published Smart Folder, the “Keywords” choice is missing from the pop-up menu of rules!

    Is this a bug?

    I’m trying to create a Published Smart Folder but this issue has me stuck.

      It turns out that “Keywords” is hidden in the “Other Metadata” submenu — until you click it. Then it goes into the list of Rules. Subtle.

      Are LR keywords stored in photo EXIF metadata?
