Getting Started - 9. Search for images
In previous chapters, we have learned skills of "collecting, organizing, viewing" images! In this chapter, we are going to learn how to quickly find images you want in Eagle.
The search bar in the upper right corner allows us to quickly find what we need by using "keyword". Eagle has fast search speed, no matter how many images you have, the search can be finished in 0.5seconds.
Click on "small triangle" button next to search bar to adjust the scope of search such as "name", "filename extension", "tag", "URL".
The advanced filter can be opened by clicking on the "funnel" button next to the search bar, this is one of Eagle's important functions. The filter allows you to find images you need according to various properties of the images.
The currently supported filters are: "color", "tag", "score", "type", "shape", "size", "note", "annotation", "URL". we are going to introduce several commonly used filters:
- Color filter
You can sue color filter to search for images according to the color, Since Eagle doesn't add color tags to find images, it can instantly find the images of any color code.
- Tag filter
You can use tags to find the images you need quickly, currently, tag filter support three modes of "AND / OR / NOT"(right-click to exclude).
- Type filter
You can use type filter to find images you need quickly, e.g., "PSD file", "PNG file".
- Shape filter
You can use shape filter to find suitable images, for example, if you are choosing images as Banner's background, you can use "slender", "landscape" to filter out appropriate background images.
Great! We have known the skills of efficient search! Next chapter, we are going to learn " how to drag and drop images to other applications for using".
