A Power Search combines a keyword, image number or photographer's name search with pre-defined category options. With these search criteria, the results are returned to meet your individual needs.
Here is more information about keywords, image numbers, photographer's names and categories:
Keyword (for example: Women)
Enter any word or words in the Keyword field and the search engine will return the images that match your keyword(s). Each Independant Photography Network image has very specific information associated with it, like a caption, country, state, season, weather, time of day, mood, concepts, and color description. The search engine combs through this information to find matches to your keywords.
Image Number (for example: 5000106001)
Enter an image number image in the Image Number field and the search engine will return the image you are looking for. Each image in the IPNSTOCK.com collection has a specific identification number. This feature is great for re-visiting a familiar image or locating an image on the suggestion of a friend or co-worker.
Enter a photographer's name when you only want to see IPNSTOCK.com images by that photographer. Searching by a photographer's name is a quick way to explore the images of a particular photographer.
Category (example: Nature & Environment)
Each Independant Photography Network is associated with a specific category. Doing a Power Search within a category is an excellent way to find the images that you need, without sorting through irrelevant images from different categories.
The search engine will return images that contain all the words you have type into the keyword field. You can use Exact Keyword Searches and Logical Operators to refine your searches.
If you search returns no results you will be provided with a list of similar keywords, categories and concepts that will link you to similar images.
