If you’ve ever tried to find 25 images out of hundreds then you know that it can be tedious to search for each one individually. If this is something that you do on a regular basis (to fulfill orders for example) you will definitely want to check out Jeffrey Friedl’s “Extended Search” Lightroom plug-in. It will allow you to copy and paste multiple file names and find them all at once (plus a whole lot more!).
While you’re on Jeffrey’s site, be sure to also check out his other plug-ins such as Metadata Wrangler, Tree Publisher and many others!

Command (Mac) | Control (Win) -clicking a Flag or Color Rating attribute in the Filter bar will select images tagged with that filter (it actually selects them, it doesn’t filter them). For example, Command (Mac) | Control (Win) -clicking the red label attribute selects any images with the red filter (yet does not filter the folder/collection etc.).

• Command + F (Mac) | Control + F (Win) displays the Filter bar and highlights the text attribute so that you can quickly search.
• Command + L (Mac) | Control + L (Win) toggle filters on and off. The difference is that this shortcut takes you to the last filter used, not necessarily the text filters.
And don’t forget, you can always filter upon multiple items by Shift -clicking on multiple parameters (such as dates or file types).
