Getting to know the timeline

The timeline, located just below the Menu bar, allows you find photos by the date, folder location, or import batch, depending on the option you chose in the Options bar.

The timeline shows how items are distributed, and bars in the timeline represent the images. The height of each bar is proportional to the number of images.

The Find bar allows you to perform quick searches of specifically tagged images.

Using the timeline to find images by date is probably the most common usage for this tool. You designate a range of time or select a specific date in the timeline, and all files that were created or saved with applicable date(s) display in the Photo Well.

The timeline is divided into years and months. Hover your mouse pointer over a bar in the timeline, and the name of the month appears. For more information on using the timeline, see Chapter 8.
