There are a lot of great photos in the Flickr universe. And you can use its Search tools to discover those photos. Or is one of the ways that you could discover those photos. Now, the search box is right up here. And I could just enter a search term, let's enter flower, and I'll hit the Return key. And I'm shown a bunch of flower shots. Flickr will start out with relevant, but if you click this down arrow, right here, you'll see that you can also filter by recent.
So these are the latest flower shots that have been uploaded. And then also interesting, which is kind of Flickr's own special sauce for looking at shots, and these tends to be quite good. Now we also have Advanced Search, so I'm going to go back over here to our Advanced Search, and let me show you how that works. Here we get to refine our search. So we have options, for instance if you're using a phrase that any of the words or the exact phrase or all the words.
We'll just stick with flower for now, but we can search in everyone's uploads. Which is the default, but I could search just in my Photostream or just with my Contacts or my Friends and Family. So you can narrow it down right here. I think this is very useful, I'm going to choose Photostream. And then I can also choose other criteria, such as safe search, type of content, only photos and videos, and search by date, I can set date parameters also.
Right now, let's just search for a flower within my photostream and see how that works. And there are my three flower shots. So the main thing about search is that when you just enter a term up here, the default will be all of Flickr. But you can also set filters for that, and then once you get the results, then you have additional filters such as relevant, recent, and interesting.
By doing so, you should be able to find just about any type of photo that you're looking for, in Flickr.
