The "Date" filter is extremely versatile. It was one of the reason to create fotoARRAY in the first place. Because I had the demand to create a book with pictures of about 40 events which happend the last day. I know on which day the event happend, but how to find interesting pictures on a hard drive with more than 400.000 images.
At first I tried to import them into ... (no, I do not name the software, which let me completely alone in the end) a different software which was advertised to handle that many images. It did not work as I expected.
I then started with fotoARRAY and the filter dialog should be the heart of it. The date filter, it looks a bit boring at first, has the ability to find may dates at once. Just name them in a list. You can save this list somewhere and paste it in when you need it again.
But then what about celebrations. Or Christmas. That happens on the same day every year.
If your birthday is on the 29. of November, just type in 29.11. - and the software shows the images taken on that day in any year.
You can also just enter a year, or a year and a month. But then you have to type 0 for the day: 0.11.2021 will show the images taken in November 2021.
In the image properties there is a "?" next to the date field of an image. If you click this, a date filter for the exact day and time will be created. So you can find sibling images quickly, i.e. different versions of the same image.
But maybe you want to show the images which were taken after this image, say in the next 5 minutes.
Just type in "+5" after the time and press enter. So you can find out images which wer taken of the same subject quickly.
Do you have questions? Please let me know.
