Search by keyword

Searching by keyword is a search for image content: you select a keyword, such as “beach”, and Excire Search will automatically and quickly generate a Lightroom collection with photos of beaches.

You can quickly refine the search by using the Excire similarity search, or by selecting a dominant color and further image properties. For example, by adding the properties “red” and “dark” to the keyword “beach” you will end up with all beaches at deep sunset. Since Excire Search automatically analyzes your images during initialization the beach photos can be found without having entered the beach keyword in the metadata or the Lightroom catalog.

You can open the keyword search dialog by selecting the menu item "Search with keyword" under Library→Plug-in Extras→Excire Search. or by using the keyboard shortcuts ⌥⌘C (macOS) or Ctrl+Alt+C (Windows). Various settings can be made in the dialog. Not only can they select keywords from a keyword hierarchy, but also dominant colors or image properties.

You can also specify whether you want to search for similar images in your entire catalog or just in the filmstrip. The maximum number of images that will be displayed in the resulting Excire Search Collection can also be changed. Furthermore, you can specify whether a former Excire Search result should be overwritten or kept as a collection.
