LIGHTROOM: Smart Collections: add 'Panoramic' to Aspect Ratio/Orientation

We shoot lots of panoramic images here, but sorting them with a Smart Collection is only half-baked. Yes, we can group all Photoshop files + Aspect Ratio = Landscape, but that brings in *any* landscape, PSD. So we end with a Smart Collection housing WAY more than just our panos.

What about the ability to have landscape, portrait AND panoramic? Bridge has it.

I agree that it would be nice if LR allowed for more flexible searching by aspect ratio. Meanwhile, as a workaround, at least two plugins provide that capability: Data Explorer and Any Filter.

Thanks, John. I went with Data Explorer for my needs. Any Filter looks good too. Thankfully there's a large community of folks building add-ons to fill in all the nooks and crannies.

You can also sort by aspect ratio (on the toolbar you get when pressing the 'T' key) - panoramas will be at the bottom (or top, if you flip the sort order).
