Hi Dan,

when you need just one specific group of images you may be able to just 
use the search input line at the top of the right hand search tab.


To get all images where the name contains both "dogs" and "-vancouver" type:

"dogs -vancouver" (notice the space before "-")

Press enter to do the search.

According to the digiKam user manual the space between words in this 
input line acts as an AND between the search words.

If you want to find multiple groups of images, you may have luck with 
the advanced search.


To get all images matching the logic ("dogs" OR "cyclists") AND 
"-vancouver" do this:

Make a new advanced search.
In the input field labeled "Find items that have associated all these 
words:" type in "dogs -vancouver"
Click the button "+ Add search group"
Make sure the logic operator between the groups are set to "OR" (in the 
blue header between the groups, click the word to switch between "OR" 
and "AND").
Scroll down to the next input field labeled "Find items that..." (as above.
Type in "cyclists -vancouver"
Do the search.

Best regards :o)
Johnny :o)
