> We have endeavored
to create an easy to search database for our growing collection of landscape 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. Keywords are under the description text on each image detail page.
> Quick Search -
By default the system uses "Match at least one keyword" for the quick search
function. If you input "rectangle pool" (without the quotes) 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 "rectangle +pool" (without the quotes)
into the search field, the system will only return results for any media
that contain both keywords "rectangle" AND "pool" in its properties.
If you input "rectangle -pool" (without the quotes)
into the search field, the system will return results for any media
that contain the keyword "rectangle", but this media can't contain the
keyword "pool" in its properties.
Note: There must not be any spaces between the
second keyword and the input operands (+), (-) keywords.
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.
