> We have endeavored to create an easy to search database for our growing collection of images. As you can see there are numerous categories to browse. You can also enter keywords in the search box to narrow your choices. We have embedded keywords into all the image collections to respond to more selected searches. The scope of your search results will be determined by your selection of keywords.
> Quick Search - By default the system uses "Match at least one keyword" for the quick search function. If you input "red sunset" (without the quotes) into the quick search field, then the search function will return results for any media that contain either "red" OR "sunset" in its properties.
The system supports the "AND" and "NOT" operands in the quick search function by the use of the plus sign (+) and minus sign (-) respectively in front of the keywords.
- If you input "red +sunset" (without the quotes) into the search field, the system will only return results for any media that contain both keywords "red" AND "sunset" in its properties.
- If you input "red -sunset" (without the quotes) into the search field, the system will return results for any media that contain the keyword "red", but this media can't contain the keyword "sunset" in its properties.
- Note: There must not any spaces between the second keyword and the input operands (+), (-) keywords.
> Advanced Search - The advanced search function doesn't use the same algorithms as above. It offers options allowing you to choose which operand you want to use for your searches.
There are three options available:
- Match at least one keyword - The system will return results for any media that contain either one of the input keywords in its properties.
- Match all keywords - The system will only return results for any media that contain all input keywords in its properties.
- Match exact phrase - The system will only return results for any media that contains the exact input keyword phrase in its properties.
