Just a Bunch of Cute Illustrations

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by another name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo called."

When it comes to romance Romeo and Juliet knew a thing or two.  In the practical world of keywording, however, you know that people searching online image sources for a rose will be calling it a rose when looking for it.

People are occasionally surprised with the search results that turn up when they're seeking illustrations and photos online. The thing to remember, however, is that attaching appropriate words to an image in order to make them easier to find is a human science.  Behind the scenes, it's just regular folks looking at an image and putting as many applicable words with it as they can. 

All then, are open to individual interpretation. For example, finding stressed businesspeople when looking for 'rat race' make sense. Conversely, however, if you use just 'race' to search you would probably be a bit confounded to discover some rodents in the mix.

When searching, therefore, it's important you keep in mind there are many variables and variations to be considered. A word that narrows the search for some will inevitably broaden it for others.  Sometimes a group of words will help, sometimes a single one is the best option. 

A site with an Advanced Search option such as the ones at iCLIPART.com and iPHOTOS.com  helps customers separate the wheat from the chaff, allowing you to exclude words, search within categories as well by colour or black and white.

So now, with all of that said, and, as I was feeling in the mood for something 'cute', let me share some collections I found using just that word. See if you agree with the results.
