In all sections you can use the search bar to find certain photos, videos, albums or labels.

You can search for all kind of things:

  • Objects that are displayed on the photo
  • The main color of the photo
  • The filename or foldername of a photo
  • Location where the photo has been taken
  • ...

Just try it!



In case you want to search for multiple things at once, enter the terms separated by a space.

A search for cat blue berlin will find all photos that either display a cat, have blue as main color or have been taken in Berlin.


Additionally to the search you can set filters for:

  • Country
  • Year
  • Order
  • Camera
  • Lens
  • Color
  • Category

In case you set multiple filters only photos are shown in the search result that fulfill all filter criteria.
