    Hi,

    so i came across this today, and I have been having a hard time figuring this out , not sure if it's a bug or I am doing something wrong , it looks like a bug , anyone can help me here?

    Create a new Smart Folder as following:

    Kind is (Image)(All)
    Non of the following are true
    (Last opened date) is (today)
    the result still shows the files that are last opened today

    Note:
    - it's better if you show the date last opened, Right Click > Show View Options > Date Last Opened
    - to make: (None) of the following are true . hold down the Option Key and the + will turn to ...

    i have similar issue with "within last" , "this week" ,"this month" & "this year"

    what is the issue here?

    I'm trying to create a Smart folder that shows the Images that was not opened today.

    I have OS X 10.10.2


    I would appreciate it if you post your results

    I see the same result in Mountain Lion. It doesn't work properly for "Date modified" either.

    I didn't test other date criteria.

    It works properly for the Name criterion. That is, when I choose "None of the following" and enter a "Name matches" criteria under the composite, the results correctly exclude image files matching the name.

    I didn't check other search criteria.

    To me it looks like a bug. It also looks like its existed for a while (since Mtn Lion at least). Please file a bug report:

Thank you for replying ^^
