    Good morning,

    [Little offt-opic — I wanted to comment on your post about smart collections, but the comments were closed.]

    There was a great tip to make a smart collection to find photo’s that were not (yet) in a collections. Since LR is collection. But now, with LR Mobile, there is always a collection, so that smart collection no longer works.

    Is there still a way to make the smart filter look for photo’s that are not in any collection but the sync’d one?

    How can I find Panorama and the sources images for the pano ?

    Frequently when I filter by text, I get some shots that don’t seem to have the text, at least in the keywords I’ve applied. For example, I might filter for “Chicago” & I’ll get shots key-worded as Chicago, but I’ll also get some shots that don’t appear to have that keyword attached. Is there text hidden somewhere I’m not seeing it? For example, does Lightroom know where I edited the file? Otherwise, I don’t know why this is happening.

      The default setting for filtering using text is to filter on “Any Searchable Field”. Try limiting that dropdown (to the right of the word “Text”), to just keywords (or whatever you prefer)

    I shared a synced collection of photographs with a friend via web. They were able to look at the images and “like” some. Since this is all supposed to be integrated, how can I filter on the “like” attribute from within the desktop app. The collection was photos I took for them and I want to work on the liked images first.
