LIGHTYROOM: Search by treatments details

At times it can be useful to be able to search photos by the particular treatment that they received during development. For example I want to only find photos that I increased exposure by 3 (specific setting), or pulled the black down below -26 (range or settings). It is possible to do this in LR 5.6, and if not, can this be included on the request list for a future release? Thank you.

It sounds like you want to search Develop History for particular adjustments.

I wonder if its possible to do this via a plug-in -- Rob Cole?

You might also try to be convincing as to why this is useful to you and others.

There are 3 different ways to do this (that I know of):
1. John Ellis' AnyFilter.
2. Jeffrey Friedl's DataExplorer.
3. My DevMeta.

Each has it's merits..

PS - I can be contacted outside the forum to discuss DevMeta..
