I have tried to create a smart album in Aperture 3 that is based on this:

1) It is flagged 2) It has a label

I have followed the instructions in provided help documentation in Aperture 3. Searching the Internet does not give any answer. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.

The resulting smart album contains all the images from the original album.

1 Answer 1


The problem is that at the top of the settings box, you have it set to choose " 'Any' of the following..." which results in either or both conditions to be part of the selection. Change it to 'All', which will mean both conditions must be true before images are added to the album.
