Search by filters

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

Recent images

By default, Yandex searches for images without consideration to 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 search query and click Find.
  2. Choose the Recent filter.

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 search query and click Find.
  2. Set the filter:
    • 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 search query and click Find.
  2. Choose the Wallpaper filter.


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

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

Image type

To find a specific type of image:

  1. Enter your search query and click Find.
  2. Set the filter:

    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 kind of images if you need to find drawn images, blueprints, maps, or paintings.

    People — images of close-up faces.

    Demotivators — images in demotivator style.

Filters of type and color work on the basis of computer vision algorithms. The contents of each image are analyzed using special algorithms that determine their specifications.

Prevailing color

If you want to find an object or background of a certain hue, select the prevailing color filter. To make search more convenient, all varieties of hues are grouped into 9 main colors. You can also search for color only or black and white images.

File format

Select the necessary parameter to search for images of a certain graphic format: JPEG, PNG or GIF. Yandex searches for images of all formats by default.

Site search

To search for images from a particular site, type its address into the On the Site field.
