Find Images – Search Results

Choosing Tools - Find Images and other image selection operations display search results for images. Use this dialog to include new images in your pages, galleries, or image indexes, or to view, sort, change, or manage existing images. CommonSpot uses a weighted algorithm for retrieving results, assigning more weight to whole word matches, with additional points for keyword or tag matches and search engine score.

Use the Show As and Sort By dropdowns for viewing options, or combine these options to filter results. For example, to quickly view all available images, choose Show As Small Images, as shown below. You can also view results in large image, report, or filmstrip format.

Close the dialog to reset search criteria and rerun the image search.

Optionally check Auto Preview to preview on mouseover as shown below.
