The search with the button, “Search This Blog!” in my sidebar searches just my photos and articles. The one saying “Search All Blogs!” does the same, but includes everything from the rest of the Thripp.com network too. Both search tools are powered by Google, so you can use all the same keywords and modifiers as you would there.
If I’ve given you a 4*6 print copy of one of my photos, and you want to find it’s page on my site, try entering the title in quote marks. The title of each piece is printed on the back. An example: “the garden in yellow”. Capitalization doesn’t matter.
If you can’t find the photo here, I probably haven’t posted it. A lot of the work I distribute still isn’t here yet. If you’d like to see it on my site, post a comment at the bottom of this page with the title of the piece. Thanks.
If I’ve given you a print copy of one of my articles, it has the URI listed on the last page. But you can also find it by searching, and putting the title in quotes will help to narrow the results list so it’s easier to find. All of my articles are here, so they should show up in the search results.
If you’re looking for a photo but have forgotten its title, check the gallery, which shows everything.
All of my stock photos have “Stock” at the start of the page title. Regular photos have “Photo” and source images have “Source.” You can use this to your advantage to just search those particular sections; put “intitle:stock” or “intitle:source” at the beginning of your search query. This is also in the URIs, but Google calls URIs URLs. So you can search “inurl:stock” too.
Try “inurl:tag” to just see tag pages, which group similar photos. You can find tags and categories by looking at any entry on the site, where you’ll see something like this:
Every tag and category, if it has more than one post, is a link. Click it to see more photos or articles like the one you’re viewing. So you can see all the photos of orange things, or all the ones with silhouettes, or everything I’ve done with the Canon Rebel XTi; you don’t even need the search engine. You can even subscribe to an RSS feed for just one tag or category; just visit it and add “/feed” to the end of the URI in your address bar. I describe this in more detail on the newsletter page.
Enjoy, and I hope you find something you like.
