How to do it
Images are indexed by several criteria. There is a general grouping by type e.g bird, butterfly
, format e.g. portrait, art, action etc and by country. There follows a series of more specific criteria including three levels of identification culminating in species. There are
in addition two paramaters for species type (e.g. male female) or pose (perched, flight etc. within the selected groups
There are two methods for selecting images - the first by text selections for several
key fields. All occurrences of the text will be retrieved.
This wil include descriptor data so may not be specific
e.g. selection of 'bee' will pick up bee-eater, bee orchid etc. but it is a quick way of finding things
More detailed selection comprises selecting from some/all of the dropdown boxes. Selection of a particular parameter will set all subservient parametrs.
For example if Birds of prey is selected at superfam level the lower fam and subfam lists
will only include types of bird of prey, and so on. Once a parameter is set it will remain so until it is cleared to 'all' when it may be reset.
For example to change from a type of bird to butt, select 'all' in the 'type' dropdown box,
click the select box and all of the type options will reappear.
A new option may then be set and this will alter all other dropdown lists to butterfly data.
