Photo Library Search Tips

Here are some useful tricks of the trade which might help:

  • Use quotation marks to group a phrase or words together e.g. ‘Golden Gate Bridge’
  • Use ’or’, ‘and’, ‘not’ in your search to include or exclude keywords. E.g. mountain AND autumn or dog NOT puppy
  • Use brackets to create search strings e.g. if you’re looking for two people hiking, use (2 or two or pair) (man or male) (woman or female) (hiking or trekking or rambling)
  • Use the image filters to select a minimum file size, ideally 70Mb is good for most wall sizes.
  • Please ensure the shape of the image matches the shape of your wall, you can use the filters to search for 'landscape' images for example.
