Frequently asked Questions
Assistance with image search
How does the image search work?
The image search is based on keywords. You can search for images in our media center using keywords, full text search or file names. Enter a keyword in the search field. You can then decide whether you want to search for a keyword, file name or a full text. For example, if you need a photo of an employee working on an engine, enter "employee" in the search field. All available images will then be shown with an employee. You can add further keywords to your search by selecting them from the keyword list. If you add the addition "engine", all pictures with employees and/or engines will be shown. Already set keywords can be removed by clicking on the cross. Furthermore, you can search directly for image names or confirm your search by clicking on the magnifying glass.
You will find pictures on the most searched topics in the keyword cloud. It is used for a quick search and shows the most searched keywords. When a keyword is already set, you can use the search bar to add more keywords to your search and then refine it.
The user interface is available in German and English. When the page is first visited, the language is based on the browser being used. You can change the language individually at any time in the user interface. Keywords are recognized in German, English and a combination of both.
