How to efficiently use filters

When the results for your keyword are too many, filters help narrow down the selection, while making results more relevant. And when you don't know yet exactly what you're looking for, you can start by applying different filters instead, without using any keywords. This allows you to find new inspiration on your journey towards the perfect image.

1. Activate filters

To display the filter selector, you first need to carry out a search (with or without keywords). To make a blank search, place the cursor in the search bar and press Enter.

2. Combine, add and remove

You can combine multiple filters in the same search. You can also add or remove filters along the way, to further refine your search as you go. In order to refresh the search results, after removing an applied filter, you have to go back to the search bar and press Enter anew.

3. Broaden your horizons

Try more abstract filters such as Concept or Imagery to broaden your views on how to communicate your message! Keep applying different filters and watch the results change, this way you can find the combination that works best for your needs.
