The main instructions for using Search and Replace are at Photographer’s Toolbox, but announcements are here on this blog where I also post articles on how to use new features. Hopefully they give you an idea of how I think the features save me time, and how you can adopt or adapt the methods.

This video shows a new feature in version 2.0 of the plugin.

Imagine you want to create a smart collection of an anniversary going back 5, 10 or maybe 20 years. Or say you want to see what you shot each day over a month when you typically take holidays or visit family. You can certainly do this without a plugin, but for each year you have to add a Capture Date line and type in the date. Try it – you’ll see that it’s a lot of work. This feature automates the creation of smart collections like that.
