Searching / Viewing Images

The file search allows you to search by keyword and refine your results by file type, orientation, date and more. To start a new search, enter a term into the search bar on the top right corner of the Galleries page. You’ll be presented with a list of matching results sorted by date created (most recent first). From there, you can use filters to refine your search.

Selecting and Downloading Images

To view a file, click on its thumbnail. To download an individual file, click the Download icon on the bottom right of the Gallery thumbnail view or the single file view. Then select the size of the file you'd like to download. If you would like to download more than one file at a time, you can do a batch download. You can download a group of files from the thumbnail view. Click Download in the lower right corner. Select the individual files you'd like to download or click Select All to download everything in the Gallery. Select your desired size and click Continue. Finally, click the download button to start downloading a ZIP file containing the files you selected.

Note that large downloads will be split into several ZIP files. Download time will vary based on the number of files, the size of the files, and your internet connection. Be sure to wait until the download has finished before you open the ZIP file.
