Search Tips

Location Searches

You can search for photos at a particular location using the Location Search function.

Simply type in an address (or part of an address), and we'll try to find photos that are nearby!


Keyword Searches

You can search for multiple keywords at once by separating them with spaces.

Standard Keyword Searches

Simply entering keywords into the search box will find all of the photos that include one or more of the keywords you typed.

For example, searching for Manly Beach will return all of the photos in our library that have keywords "Manly" or "Beach", or any combination of the two.

Including Specific Keywords

Adding a plus sign (+) in front of a keyword will tell us to only return results that include that keyword.

For example, Searching for +Manly Beach will return photos that have the keyword Manly, but not necessarily Beach (eg. Manly Corso would be included, but Bondi Beach would not).

You can add the plus sign (+) to any number of keywords.

Excluding Specific Keywords

Adding a minus sign (-) in front of a keyword will tell us to only return results which do not have that keyword.

For example, Searching for -Bondi Beach will only return photos that don't have keyword Bondi, but do have Beach - so you would use this search to find pictures of any beach but Bondi Beach.

You can add the minus sign (-) to any number of keywords.

Searching for Phrases

Wrapping two or more keywords in double quotes - like this - "Bondi Beach" searches for the exact phrase.

You can also add + or - before the quotes to include or exclude that phrase (eg. -"Bondi Beach" would return every photo in our library that doesn't feature Bondi Beach.)
