Advanced search

General notes

Seize the whole word, without truncation, in its infinitive form.
 The seizure of the words can be done either in small or capital letters, with or without accent, with or without hyphen.
 Research can be done either by one or more words, or by references of images.
 Do not use the signs + - | or words like AND OR EXCEPT WITHOUT as Boolean operators.

Boolean operators

AND : Refines the search by showing only the pictures containing ALL the words present in the description of the image.
             Searched words : man AND dog.
             Result of the search : pictures representing men and dogs together.

OR : Widens the search by showing the pictures containing 1 of the words or all the words.
         Searched words : man OR dog.

Free search by key-word(s)

Extension of the search

Full text search relates to all the fields of a file (support, title, caption...) So the result of the search is wider.

Search by only one keyword or by the reference of a picture:

Seize a word or a reference number in one of the 3 fields and push „Enter“ or click on „OK“.
If the word generates too much „noise“, you must either refine the search by crossing several keywords or use the guided search (explained here-under).

Search by more than one keyword or by references of pictures:

Search by Boolean operators AND OR NOT

3 possibilities of search with more than one keyword or references of pictures:

1. Seize one word or picture reference per field by selecting the Bolean operator you wish.
2. Seize several words or picture references in one and the same field.
3. Seize a group of words or an exact expression between "quotation marks" in order to avoid "noise", i.e. pictures not relating to the desired subject. Example:  "Steam boat" seized between quotation marks makes it possible to exclude the images containing the words "boat" and "steam".  You will only get pictures of "Steam boat"s.

Search in the thesaurus

With one keyword only

1. Click on the “One keyword only” tab
