greeting friends,I have always wondered if it would be possible for the site to have a feature that would show images only like search engines do.So if I plug in say blue and white seto plate I would see all images under that discripion.This would be a good research option.Just curious.

Dear James

Theoretically this is possible to create but we are too small a community to develop a function like that, that would be safe to use and not make the server shut down. There were a few years ago a private initiative to this end that worked in a small scale but first made the server collapse and also was such a massive security problem that I gave it up.

It is more complex than one might think and the size of the archive (some 250,000 images) that would need to be re indexed and resized on a regular basis would need a different funding than we have.

Thanks Jan Eric for the explanation of my pipe dream.
