06/21/06: Sorting photos by "date picture taken"

Sorting photos by "date picture taken" (Windows only, sorry Apple eaters...)

When you are in Windows Explorer, from the details view, find the modified date column...to the right of that column heading you should see empty space. If you RIGHT CLICK on the empty space (the line, not the entire window) where the column headings are, you'll see a pop-up menu with more choices. Click on "more"...then you should see the "choose details" pop-up window. Scroll down and check "date picture taken." That option will now appear as a clickable column (click once and it will sort from oldest to newest, click again and it's newest to oldest, etc.)

** This only works for j-peg files, HOWEVER, I've noticed that the default sort of file name will keep the files together (if you should RAW + jpeg)...so even though RAW files don't display a value for "date picture taken"...they should still be in order since the jpegs of same name (e.g. IMG_0001.jpg + IMG_0001.CRW) will show date picture taken info.

How do you then do a search on this attribute?
