How to purchase images on this site
All images on this website are copyrighted.
Any copying, usage and/or distribution is strictly prohibited.
> We strive to make it as easy as possible for you to find just the right image in our growing collection. To find a particular image you can either browse a particular category, or enter
keywords in the search box (upper right-hand corner) to narrow your choices. Keywords are embedded
in all of our images to facilitate rapid — yet (hopefully) accurate — 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 beautiful sunset (without quotation marks) into the
quick search field, then the search function will return results for any
media that contain either beautiful 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 beautiful+ sunset (without quotation marks)
into the search field, the system will only return results for any media
that contain both keywords beautiful AND sunset in its properties.
If you input beautiful- sunset (without quotation marks)
into the search field, the system will return results for any media
that contain the keyword beautiful, 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 (+) and (-)
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.
