About Saved Searches

Saved Searches are albums that collect media matching specified criteria. After you create a Saved Search, any media that matches the criteria of that Saved Search appears automatically in the Saved Search results. As you add new media to the catalog, the media items matching the Saved Search criteria also appear automatically in the Saved Search results. Saved Searches keep themselves up-to-date.
