1,  Enter your search keywords in the input box and click on the Search button. [See items 7 - 9  below]

2.  A maximum of 40 images will be displayed and if this is exceeded you should choose different search keywords likely to produce a more restricted set of results and try again.

3. If no search keywords are entered all the images in the collection (up to a mavimum of 40) will be displayed.

4. When your results appear, each time a main image is loaded, providing the mouse is in the main image area, it will be overlaid for 5 seconds by
    •     a caption (if any - which may contain a link to another site - revealed by moving the mouse over the caption)
    •     the image number (and total number of images)
    •     the button bar and return icon (see below)
    •     the Next (–>) and Previous (<–) image icons

    You can hide the overlay at any time by moving the mouse outside the main image area and then restore the overlay later by moving the mouse back into the main image area.

5. Up to ten thumbnail images  will be displayed in a strip below the main image. If more thumbnails are available, use the < and > icons adjacent to the strip to move through them. Clicking on a thumbnail will load the corresponding image into the main image window.

6. The button bar and return icon enable various operations to be carried out as shown below.

7. All the search keywords (which are case insensitive) are required to match an item (usually its caption) for it to be displayed.

8. Keywords will match words that are longer than the keyword and even words where the keyword is contained within a word, e.g. 'side' will also match 'sideboard' and '"consider' as well, of course, as 'side'. 

9. Multiple word search strings can be employed, in which case they must be input into the search box within double quotes e.g. "crop circle".

10. If you click on the "Show Image Fullsize" icon the image will be displayed in a new tab in your browser. Close the tab to return to the Gallery display.
