Search engines on stock photography agency websites are sophisticated.  The success of your search on their stock photo agency websites makes your customer experience positive, fast and retains your membership. Indexing and keywords are a critical part of the stock photo database. Color is easy to search but you need to determine what you are looking for in your final result before you search.

Define how you want to use color in your photo

Before you begin  your  search, define how you want the color used. Does the color yellow need to dominate the photo or  is a  yellow object  required in  the  photo. Searching yellow will bring up thousands of photos with yellow as the predominate color and photos with yellow objects. If you want yellow flowers or yellow balls, define this in your search.

Stock photo search on iStockphoto is easy

We all make this mistake when searching for information. We are not clear as to what we are looking for in our searches when a word has multiple uses or meanings.  For an example, the work green can be used to describe environmentally friendly products or actions or the color green or a golf green. Internet browsers can get confused and pull up webpages that are unrelated to what we are looking for. The stock photo agency iStockphoto has enhanced their search options by adding a prompting function to their search engine that asks the member to define the use of their search word.  This added search feature makes your search better and your results closer to what you are looking for.

Check out the iStockphoto search engine and see if you get better results in your stock photography searches.
