dc: (or datecreated:) is the date created function.

(You'd want to enable indexing of dc, Options | Indexes -> Index date created.)

For a range...?

dc:>10-1-2016

Then sort by the Date Created column (which you'd also need to make visible).
That would give you files created in the past year.
You'd have to manually look through to see what meets your criteria.

dc:>9-1-2017 dc:<9-15-2017

Would give you files created within a range of dates.

hey,
thanks for the reply. but i need to find images that were created at the same time within a range of months.
eg. from 01-08-2017 to 01.09.2017 at 11:00am.
Is there a way to wildcard the date?

dc:01-08-2017-01-09-2017

Please note: dc: will be slow if you have not enabled date created indexing from Tools -> Options -> Indexes -> Index Date Created.
Please try dm:01-08-2017-01-09-2017 (dm = date modified) If the images have not been modified, Everything will give the same results as dc:, however, dm: will show the results instantly.

dc:01-08-2017-01-09-2017 will give me all files during this period?

is there a way to say dc:01-08-2017-01-09-2017 and 11.32pm (not the syntax just the logic) to get all images that are created at this exact time of the day? thanks in advance

Everything supports ISO 8601.

Please try searching for:
dc:2017-08-01-2017-09-01T23:32

Note the year-month-day order.
Follow the date with a T and the 24-hour time.
