Search via image keyword
Each image is displayed with its metadata (description, keywords) if enlarged.
By clicking on an image's keyword you may search for this keyword in the entire image database.
Search via search box
The entire image database may be searched by the search box, which is displayed in the top right corner.
- the search input field is only displayed within the password protected client area (and not in the public area)
- please use keyword in singular (example : flower and not flowers)
Search language is english.
You may specify one or several search criteria, which appear in the image metadata (description, keywords).
For complex requests please use the operators in uppercase (AND, OR, NOT)
(for example 'Germany AND NOT animal' for images from Germany with no animal).
Entered search criteria without operators are meant as AND-requests (for example 'tree europe' searches for images that contain tree and europe).
Search criteria consisting of several words have to be enclosed by inverted commas (example : "Sunset Point", which searches for this entire text; otherwise it would search for images taken at sunset and at a location containing point and may return more images than expected).
