for images using keywords, use singular forms of the words
whenever possible and use very general terms for maximum search
results. Remember, the more specific the terms, the more narrow
the results. Human beings enter keywords for images and each
individual will describe an image differently. Keeping this
in mind, entering a broad range of keywords will deliver the
maximum potential results and assist you greatly in finding
the image you are looking for.
features will further assist you in narrowing your results
to the images that you require:
“ALL” – This
is the default setting and search results will be limited to
images containing all of the keywords entered. This allows
you to limit your search to more specific results, but also

All Categories” is chosen to search the entire site .
When starting a new search, always reset the category to either “Select
All Categories” or to the new category in which you wish
