    I have thousands of photos and I need to select these from
    miscellaneous folders into a specific size, specific
    dimensions, B&W/colour, colour cast etc.

    Can WindowsXP explorer be adjusted to do this, or is there
    some 3rd-party software to do the job?

    Being able to search and select pixel density would be a
    help too.

    Please help, Frank

    Is Windows (Desktop) Search 4 installed?

    No, I've never heard of it. Where can I get this?

    Make sure it's not installed: It's be list in Add/Remove Programs, Frank.

    I have downloaded it and I will check it out. I have done
    a quick test of the options and the only thing different
    from the normal WindowsXP explorer seems to be the ability
    to search on the dimensions of photos. Still, this will be
    a help. I have thousands of scrambled photos to be sorted
    into groups & sets.

    Thanks

    YMMV. I only asked if Windows (Desktop) Search was installed, I didn't
    recommend installing it.
