    Hello..

    I'm looking for a way to get my "Finder" to automatically sort the tags by file format..

    is there anyone who knows about such an app exists?

    Just go into Finder to the folder you want to sort and right click within that folder, this will bring up a menu with options, go to Arrange By and click, then click on how you want the files within that folder arranged. Screenshot below.

    i know that :)

    i want my tags sorted by file types not folder.

    example: all .mp3 file on my mac will tagged yellow

    and yellow tag is rename to music

    and blue color tags is called photos, maybe, so all .jpg .png on mac will be blue

    Its not going to be an app, since you're looking for functionality within Finder. Maybe a Finder replacement like Path Finder or Total Finder.

    Use Spotlight; kind is music, or kind is image. And you can refine within that.

    You could then select the kind and tag them.

    it would really take an incredibly long time, and it would more easy just open all my folders one by one select and tag them..

    the answer does not make sense..

    Well the file has to be tagged first.

    Maybe an Apple Script ?
