Advanced Image Searches

Redframe supports the use of special logical operators in the Search Terms to perform advanced search techniques.

The following characters are “special” characters used for logical search operations:

AND

Returns results that match ALL of the search terms combined by the AND operator.

Example: AND fish AND red

Returns: all examples matching both “fish” and “red”

OR

Returns results that matches EITHER of the search terms combined by the OR operator.

Example: fish OR red

Returns: all examples matching both “fish” or “red”

NOT

Returns results that DO NOT match the search term after the NOT operator

Example: fish NOT red

Returns: all examples matching “fish” that do not match “red”

+

Returns the same as the AND operator.

Example: +fish +red

Returns: all examples matching both “fish” and “red”

-

Returns the same as the NOT operator

Example: fish -red

Returns: all examples matching “fish” that do not match “red”

Exact Phrase

If a keyword contains more than one word, then it is called a phrase. You can add quotes around an exact phrase you want to match.

Example: fish -”red bass”

Returns: all examples matching “fish” that do not match “red bass”

Other Considerations

Searches are NOT case sensitive. A search for “Cars NOT Boats” will return the same results as a “cars not boats” search.

We also recommend that you use alpha numeric characters only in your image keywords. This will insure that the keyword can be easily matched.
