If you are like me and frequently trying to find a photo with just the right orientation, this LR tip from Tony Northrup will help you.

Create a Smart Collection based on "Size > Aspect Ratio", then select Portrait or Landscape. Done!

Collections are a very useful and powerful feature of Lightroom. If you are a Lightroom user and are not familiar with them you should watch this tutorial on collections by Julieanne Kost. Covered topics are Collection sets, Collections, and Smart Collections. Applies to Lightroom 5 and up.
