Search tips

Because many plants have several common names, you should search for scientific plant names if possible. Multiple search items can be combined with the boolean operators AND, OR and NOT. If no operators are specified, the AND operator is used by default.

  • rose red finds images and videos of red roses

Search options

A number of options can be used to filter the search results of images. By default all available images are displayed.

Image licence: If you would like to see Royalty Free images only, uncheck One-time use and check Royalty Free if necessary. Make sure to check both options (One-time use and Royalty Free) to display all available images.

Image orientation: If you would like to see horizontal images only, uncheck Vertical and check Horizontal if necessary. Make sure to check both options (Vertical and Horizontal) to display all available images.

Image size: If you would like to see only images suitable for double page prints (DIN A3 at 300 dpi), check 2/1 page (A3). Make sure to uncheck both options (1/1 page (A4) and 2/1 page (A3)) to display all available images.

Search lists

With the form for search lists you can search for multiple search items at once, e.g. a list of scientific or common plant names.
