    Question Search in 4 specific folders
    I'm working in Leopard 10.5.8. Is there any way to perform a search by file name in specific folders but not all of them in a directory.
    I need to search a picture in the 4 folders highlighted but not in the 5th one. See attached. I can't move the 5th folder to another directory because there is thousands of pictures linked to that location. Is it possible to do that?

    Welcome to the Forum. Seems like you could build that in Automator - look in our Apps folder;

    Collin, I gave a try. I used Find Finder Items in automator I chose the 4 folders I want to search in, type the picture name 4 times & it took 3 minutes to reveal Finder items. Any additional automator suggestions?
