Tips and tricks for your image search!


How to find the right image amongst 100 million through clever image search


Tipps und Tricks zur Suche



Keywords for your image search

Don't be shy tell us a bit more about what you are looking for in your image search. Enter a few more keywords and just one or two for a more accurate result with your image search. With 100 million, this quickly helps to narrow your search to pictures that accurately reflect what you are looking for. If you use Chrome, try voice to text entry. 

Use filters to narrow down your image search

There is a broad range of very useful filters on the left side of the image search pane, which allow you to quickly narrow down the result of your image search. People, colors, image orientation and more are among the options available.

Try the colour Search for your image search

Use the colour search to find a mood or colour feel in your image search. A special feature is the possibility to upload an image to determine the color, mood or feel. For example, if you need an appropriate picture to sit well alongside an already selected image. You can upload that picture or any other picture of your own choosing and then control the image search result related to your picture's colour tonality with keywords. This greatly shortens the time needed for image search to find multiple pictures in the same tonality for one or multiple subjects.

Search entry by voice for your image search

This is a feature we find particularly cool. Even if we say so ourselves.  In the Chrome browser you can use voice input for your image search. Just click on the microphone at the side of the top left search box. No more need for annoying typing. Makes using "more keywords" easier and faster than ever before. The result accuracy of ýour image search when using more keywords is amazing, by the way. And don't worry, with 100 million pictures there are practically always enough pictures in the result.

Similar Search as part of your image search

Please also take note also the similar search, which you can find under pictures in the preview window. This makes it easy to quickly find pictures from the same shoot or similar content without having to enter keywords again for a new image search.

Sort orders for your image search

There are 3 sort orders for image search results, and playing with those sometimes brings new ideas up quickly. With "Relevance" we have made a mix of success, image rating and upload date. Hopefully self-explaining.  Topsellers works like the music charts these days, with a mix of single-image sales and downloads from subscriptions being used to present popular images first. And date of course shows newly uploaded image first.
