Search by filters

To refine your search, use the filters below the search bar:

Recent images

By default, Yandex searches for images without considering when they were posted. In search results, the time of posting is only listed for pictures that were uploaded less than a month ago.

If you only want to find the latest images (i.e. those added in the last week), choose the appropriate setting. That way only images that are time and date stamped when they were uploaded will be shown in the search results:

  1. Enter your query and click Search.
  2. Filter by Recent.

If no recent images are found based on your search, you will be directed to results from other search engines.

Image size

Yandex searches for images of all sizes by default. If you want to find images of a particular size:

  1. Enter your query and click Search.
  2. Use one of these filters:
    • Large — for images larger than 1024×768 pixels.
    • Medium — for images between 400×300 and 1024×768 pixels.
    • Small — for images smaller than 400×300 pixels.

Your image search results will indicate the size of the image.

You can also specify image size manually. Just enter the appropriate values and click OK.

Wallpaper for your desktop

Wallpapers are images that you can set as your computer's desktop background. Wallpaper size must meet the standard requirements of 800×600 to 2048×1536 pixels.

To only search for wallpaper:

  1. Enter your query and click Search.
  2. Choose the Wallpaper filter.


You can also set the image proportions you want: landscape, portrait, or square.

  1. Enter your query and click Search.
  2. Set the filter value.

Image type

To find a specific type of image:

  1. Enter your query and click Search.
  2. Use one of these filters:

    Photo — for photographs or images that look like photos. Use this filter if you want to exclude maps and other graphics from search results.

    With white background — for images displayed against a solid white background.

    Pictures and drawings — for illustrations. Select this type if you are looking for drawings, blueprints, maps, or paintings.

    People — for close-ups of faces.

    Demotivators — images in demotivator style.

Computer vision algorithms filter images by type and color. The contents of each image are analyzed using special algorithms that determine their characteristics.

Prevailing color

If you want to find an object or background of a certain hue, use the color filter. To make searching more convenient, all gradients are grouped into nine main colors. You can also filter out color or black-and-white images.

File format

You can search for images of a certain graphic format using the appropriate file format parameter: JPEG, PNG or GIF. Yandex searches for images of all formats by default.

Site search

To search for images from a particular site, type the URL in the On Site field.
