Welcome to Search Tips.
Our goal here is to help you find your images faster so you can get back to creating great content. The download button for subscription accounts is a small download symbol at the bottom right of the image you want to download. Reference image below.

Most images are laid out in a folder structure.
Example: Trucks By Type  > (Sub Folder) > Aerodynamics - Auto - BobTail - Cab Over. We try to keep all possible images in their respective Folders and Sub Folders. Sometimes we miss placing an image in the exact folder so a keyword search may also be beneficial. (One image can also be in multiple folders). Folder searches begin in the navigation bars above or bottom of every page. 

The fastest way is using our keyword search bar.
However, it is not an intelligent search. It is an EXACT search. Single word searches typically work fine. Example: Conway images, "Conway" will work just fine. Multiple  words can cause problems. If you're looking for JB Hunt you may want to try "JB Hunt" or "JBHunt". So if you're looking for Bay & Bay Transportation in the keyword search you would need to type Bay Bay. No ampersand, no "and" and no transportation.  In addition, keyword searches may bring up multiples of the same image. Sorry about the exactness of the search criteria. We are working on improvements every day.

The year the photo was taken is part of the file name: ( truck_092712_lr_179 the 12 is the year reference image below ) Images taken before 01/31/2010 are on average, 2-4 MB. Images taken after 02/01/2010 are, on average, 3-8 MB and are typically sharper images. Images after May 21, 2013 are the sharpest images.

All uploads starting 01/01/15 will average 8-25 MB  Note: 2015 and newer have not been uploaded yet. Projected upload date is 07/01/2017 and is expected to be a massive update.

Most images are released at 300 PPI also commonly confused with DPI. Pixels Per Inch (PPI) and (DPI) Dots Per Inch). Your printer will probably ask for 300 DPI so your fine. If you run into a resolution issues from our very early work let us know and we will fix it ASAP. If you are ever dissatisfied with our work we will be happy to refund or exchange.  

Need the image in a RAW, PNG, PSD, TIFF or any other format? Just ask.  

We are introducing a new line of  "Low Light" images. These images are shot at high ISO's and require noise reduction technology. As a result the Mega Pixels are reduced and some details become not as sharp. So, of course, full daylight images are the sharpest and the low light images are not as sharp. The end result is pleasing but there are some sacrifices. 

Still can't find that image you need? Feel free to contact us. If you are under the subscription model and have a special request please submit your request and we will do our best to capture your image at no additional cost.
