Why don't I find the images I'm searching for?

Fast search:

You can do it introducing words referring to the images you are searching for. It is a simple search, so you can introduce several words (separated by a space) and only the results containing these terms will appear. 

When you choose the word you want to introduce, you have to take into account:

  • Semantic root: It is better to introduce singular terms, similar to the root as much as possible. To make an example, if you introduce the word work, you will find images including the terms work, works, worker, workers, working, workable, etc. But if you use directly the term workable, you will find images results including only this word.
  • Singular/Plural: It is recommended to introduce singular words in order to obtain a better result.

Which is the difference between the included search and the exact search?

Both are a way to do a fast word search . The included search considers the word as a part of or as the whole keywords each image contains, taking into account that the word identification always begins from the root and it never begins from other points.
The exact search instead is obliged to contain exactly the word in the same way it is written. This is why it is a more restricted search, that normally gives less results.

What are extras?

Depending on the number chosen, you will have more or less results pages. In order to navigate the results you can click with the mouse on the numeration or on the arrows.
