If you select "Text" for your search, search will return items that have descriptive text that matches the terms you entered. You can use quotes to search for phrases, and use a "-" before a search term to return only items that do not have that search term.
Each picture in Arkiva Tropika has tags associated with it. You can use tags to select and restrict the pictures you want to see. To search for multi-word tags, put them in quotes. To remove any items from your search with a particular tag, put a "-" in front of it.
Tag Search examples:
This search returns all the pictures in Arkiva Tropika with the "postcard" tag.
This search returns only the pictures in Arkiva Tropika that have both the "hotel" and the "postcard" tag.
hotel postcard -"hotel room"
This search returns only the pictures in Arkiva Tropika that have both the "hotel" and the "postcard" tag, and no pictures that have the "hotel room" tag, because it has a "-" before it. "hotel room" is two words, but one single tag, so it is put in quotes.
