I'm looking specifically for images or sketches of the apostles.

Thanks,

Ron

Yes.

A Basic Search of entire library for

#image ANDEQUALS apostle

will do it.

If you want another subject then change "apostle" as needed.

Ronald,

yes.

This is the syntax "# image@word" (without the quotes)

For example: #image@jesus will find all of the images that have Jesus as a part of the title.

Interesting...three different people gave three different responses. I tried all three options and got three different results (rather than two as I might have expected):

#image jesus

 

#image ANDEQUALS jesus

 

#image@jesus

Rosie,

that's because they are 3 different searches with 3 different results:

 

#image jesus gets images and jesus references...not what we are looking for.

#image ANDEQUALS jesus gets images where jesus is part of the description but not part of the title necessarily.

only #image@jesus gets images specifically with jesus in the title.

Thanks for that clarification. I'd never seen the @ syntax documented before (except in connection with Morph search, which this is not), and have not used ANDEQUALS before either (the documentation on it is unclear). So I thought maybe @ was supposed to be a synonym for ANDEQUALS. It is in Logos 3:

Thanks everyone for all the help.  This is exactly what I was looking for.

Robert, where is the syntax documented?

I also note a difference between #image@jesus (no space)  and #image @jesus  (with a space)

I noted that difference too, but then I realized the results were the same as for #image jesus (without the @)

Dave,

No documentation, just my observation, and I'm frequently wrong!

I noticed that searches that "look legit" are fooling us sometimes (remember the words of Christ searches?) and the results we are getting are really the results of a search called  "image AND jesus" rather than "an image titled jesus"

Hmmm. Enough observation that we have more undocumented search operators!

#image ANDEQUALS Jesus seems to produce the right results (Jesus in the title or description of the image).

#image@Jesus seems to return images that are followed immediately by the word 'Jesus'.

The #image search is interesting. Are there other #?????? searches?

What did you have in mind? It may not be solved that way, but an existing operator might do the job!

I can see why Frank might have been asking that even if he had nothing specific in mind. It's always fun to learn about cool little features you hadn't known about and tuck that knowledge away for future reference, even if you have no need for it right now.

But no, I don't know of any other #????? search operators besides #image.

Hm...that's weird, but I thank you for working it out for me....!

Bob, that's not fair. You didn't mention that folk need the 4.0c beta to do this!

But you can do it in 4.0b with title:jesus in a collection of media files (type:media) and maps (type:map)
