35. Find Items of the Same Media Type
Before You Begin
33 About Finding Items in the Catalog
32 Add an Audio Caption
The three types of files you can import into the photo well are digital, scanned, or created images (of course), video files, and audio files. There are several file formats for each type, which Windows distinguishes from one another using a filename extension such as .JPG or .JPEG for images using the Joint Photographic Experts Group format or .WAV for audio files using WAVE format.
The Organizer is not concerned with file formats, howeveronly the types of media the files contain: photos, audio, or video. In this task, you learn how to display items in the catalog based on their media typeaudio files for example. If you want to locate items by file type (such as JPG, GIF, or TIFF), search for that part of their filename (for example, search for items with JPG or JPEG as part of their filename as explained in 36 Find Items with Similar Filenames).
The Organizer also includes in its catalog items you create using the program, such as slideshows and greeting cards. When you need to, you can have the photo well show only your creations (slideshows, photo albums, cards, and so on). Of course, the entire creation won't be displayed in the photo well (most of them contain multiple pages), but the first page of each one will appear as its thumbnail. You can also search for items (regardless of media type) that have an audio caption attached to them. You might do this, for example, to review the images you've annotated with audio.
