Advanced Search with Area-Property

Post by Robosoc » 24 Mar 21 18:05

1. Is there a way to look for images that have e.g. more then 5 areas defined?
(Example: automated face detection in external tool finds many unimportant faces on mass events such as wedding photos, sport events, concerts...)

2. Is there a way to show images that have areas without linked labels (I would call them empty areas)?

3. Is there an advanced search method that performes following task:
Find images, that have one or more areas (empty or linked) AND a label "Sven" BUT no link between "Sven" and the/an area?

BR,
Sven

For 3. I had an idea, but it does not work out so far:

My test case:
I currently have three images of any "Sandra" with area's detected.
Only one of them has an area linked to person called "Sandra", but this image also has a linked area called "Jana".
The two other images have one "empty area" (not linked to a person yet) currently.
I would like to perform a search resulting in the two images with no area link.

I processed I Dynamic Search with three items:
  1. including states (With Areas) // as single search this gives me 994 items currently
  2. including text (Sandra@PROP) // as single search this gives me 238 items currently
  3. -> excluding text (Sandra@AREA) // as single search this gives me 24731 items currently - or inverse only the one item with area-link to Sandra.
with "Join these items" (AND).

The Dynamic Search above gives me all three images, which is strange.

"Join" should process an "AND"-Relation between the three search items and an AND-Relation with the third search item which excludes all images of my collection except one, can only result in one image, right? Either I make a mistake or there is a small bug in the dynamic search.

Or in other words:
The beavior of the above given search seems to be
-> (states (with Areas) AND Sandra@PROP) OR Sandra@AREA
while I'd expect
-> states (with Areas) AND Sandra@PROP AND NOT Sandra@AREA

So my suggestion is, that there might be a bug in Dynamics Searches with exclusive searches and Join, or...with me :)

But another example would be a Dynamic Search like
(group (text (*@area))) excluding (group (text (Sandra@area)))
Even on that Search the EXCLUDING is not processed at my side.

Running 6.0.0.3627 by the way

For 2. I had an idea, which also doesn't work.
-> ""@area //gives no results
in fact it seems as if the search is not even performed because the headline in the image view section does not change accordingly

-> @area // gives 6307 results, but I don't understand why, yet. As I have currently 994 images with areas.

Great find! I was able to reproduce this. The excluded search text (Sandra@AREA in your case) was not being added to the search statement, hence the wrong result. This is fixed for the next build.

Build 3635 is available from the website (no web update trigger). That includes the fix for the "exclude search text"

Installed - tested - works like intended!!! Thank you, Hert.

any Idea for Search 1 (Filter on quantitiy of areas) or Search 2 (Filter on areas without link)?

BR, Sven

I've created a script to filter on the number of areas.
