Search Tips



Search With Keywords

1

Start your Locstock search by typing a keyword into the search bar on the home page of our site. A keyword is any word you could use to describe the kind of location you're looking for (e.g. kitchen, wooden floors, etc.), or the name of a specific well-known location (e.g. Nelson Mandela Bridge). Each image and location has a unique file number. If you know the file number of the image or location you are looking for, you can enter it into the search box and be taken directly to the result/s relating to that number.

Refining your Search Results

Narrow by Keyword

Narrow by keyword

Narrow your search by City/Town or Suburb

On the left side of the search results page is a column with a City/Town fields. You can uncheck the boxes next to the City/Town or the Suburbs in order to remove images in these areas from your search results. You can always check the boxes again to bring the removed images back to the results page.

Narrow your search by Category

The entire Locstock library is divided into categories. These are common themes that group location and image files and include things like Houses, Stadiums, Streets etc. You can filter your results by unchecking the categories you don’t want near the bottom left-hand side of the search results page. As in the case above, you can always check the boxes again in order to bring the removed images back to the results page.

Search by File Number

If you know the file number of the image or location you'd like to purchase, you can enter it into the Search box and be taken directly to the results page for that file.

Search Results Are Zero

If your search has yielded zero results, it most likely means you're being too specific (or you're searching for something really unusual). Try removing keywords from your search, or changing some of your refinements to generate more matches.
