Do you know you’re looking for a JPEG but don’t want to search every other document type on your Mac? Speed up your search thanks to Spotlight search operators, just type:
kind:jpeg filename With this the only documents searched will be jpeg. You can specify just about any kind of document, from pdf, to doc, txt, etc.

There’s a whole post on search operators within Spotlight if you’re interested.

    what’s up with that?
