Image Search Syntax

Basic Search

Only documents that contain all words from your search request are shown. The more words you put in your search request, the more precise the search becomes.

Exact Phrases

Use double quotes to search for an exact phrase. This eliminates documents where the words occur but are not next to one another or are in the wrong order.

Exact Words

Use the "+" operator to search for the exact word in a document. This operator also allows you to search for link words (like "the", "a", "of", "or", "and") which are ignored by default.

Optional Terms

The "OPT" operator allows you to specify a term without making its presence mandatory for a document to appear in the search results.

Exclude Terms

The "-" operator allows you to remove all documents containing a specific word or expression from the search results.

Proximity Search

The "NEXT" operator finds documents where the query terms are next to each other.

The "NEAR" operator finds documents where the query terms are all in a short range of words.

Logic

The "AND" and "OR" operators can be combined to match documents against advanced boolean logic.

Phonetic Search

When you do not know how to spell a word, write it as it sounds and use a phonetic search. Results will include words that sound like what you typed.

Approximate spelling Search

When you are not sure about the spelling of a word, you can search with spelling approximation.

Images with specific width

You can specify the exact width (width=128) or define a minimum (width>128) or a maximum (width<1000) in pixel.

Images with specific height

You can specify the exact height (height=128) or define a minimum (height>128) or a maximum (height<1000) in pixel.

Adult pictures

You can search for adult pictures.

Site Search

The "site:" operator restricts a search to a particular web site.

URL Search

The "inurl:" operator allows you to search for a word or a group of words found within the URL of a document.
