The Advance Search Window
There are three search methods available to the user within the Advanced Search mode.
The first option (AND) informs the system that it should include only results that include all the words in the search criteria. For example when searching man boat, woman on the water would not show up in the results but woman on a boat would show up in the results.
The second option (OR) informs the system that it should include results that include any of the words in the search criteria. For example when searching for man boat, woman on the water and woman on a boat would both show up in the results because each of the assets contained either man or boat.
The final option is to set the search to "An exact phrase match". This option informs the system that it should only include results that match the exact characters and spacing of the provided search letters, word, or words. For example when searching for man boat the results would contain neither woman on the water nor woman on a boat since neither refer to a man boat. On the other hand an image by the name of man boat2 would show up in the results because it exactly matched the provided search information.
There are three options for searching by the orientation of an image. You may select from Portrait, Landscape, or Any. By default "Any" is selected to allow for all orientations to be returned in the results.
You may select the file types you wish to search for with this option. All checked options will refine the search to those file types. Leaving all the file types empty will allow for a generic search that ignores file type.
The Quick Edit icon allows you to use, save, and delete from a list of search criteria privided by you the user. This can come in handy when you wish to remember the exact search command you typed in to pull up certain results. It is also handy when users are sharing accounts because it allows them to direct results to one another.
