AgStock Images Search Tips

There are several ways to search for images on the AgStock Images website.

Keyword Search, accessed from the homepage and all secondary pages, is the easiest search method. Simply type in one or more keywords and click the “Search” button. Your search will return every image that includes those keywords. For example, type “soybean” and your search results will include soybeans, soybean fields, soybean harvesting, soybean planting, soybean diseases, etc. By typing “soybean” and “harvest” and “combine”, your search will return only images that have all three keywords, thus narrowing down the number of images to view. The keyword search returns images from all three product lines unless you uncheck one, or more, of the check boxes.

To search for images by a specific photographer simply enter the photographers name and click the “Search” button. To search for a specific image, enter the image number, eg. AGST-12345 or 12345, and click the “Search” button.

Advanced Search utilizes the Keyword Search, but narrows the search further by allowing the user to select specific additional criteria such as product lines, model or property release status, image orientation, or various boolean expressions. You may further narrow your search by including a photographer’s name. Only images by that photographer and which include your keywords will be found.

Click the “Advanced Search” link in the lower section of the Keyword Search box to access this search mode.

Category Search results in a very specific image selection and does not use keywords. It is accessed from the “Browse Image Categories” link in the Keyword Search box, or by selecting the Categories navigation tab at the top of each page. All images in the AgStock Images collection are categorized in Subject Categories - main categories and sub categories. Here are some examples:


Crops / Corn / Grain & Silage / Early Growth

Harvesting / Peanuts

Livestock / Cattle, Dairy / Cattle Breeds / Holstein / In Pasture

By using the Category Search, every image within the specific category or sub category will appear in the search results. No images will appear from other categories, eliminating the time it takes to wade through hundreds of images that are irrelevant to the searcher’s needs.

When accessing the Categories you will have two search options. First, you will notice thumbnail images in the main window with a description below. These represent Image Categories. Click on a thumbnail and you will see either all the selected images from that category, or you will see thumbnails of sub-categories. Again, click on a thumbnail and you will see selected images from that sub-category. A few categories may have as many as three, four or five sub-category levels.

The second search method is accessed from the Categories column on the right side of every secondary page. This text list shows every Main Category. Categories with a + indicate sub-categories. Click on the + and the sub-categories will be shown. Click on any of the links without a + and the images from that category or sub-category will appear in the main window. Notice the numbers in parentheses to the right of each category. The number on the left indicates the number of sub-categories within the category. The number on the right indicates the number of images within that category.

We have endeavored to create an easy, but comprehensive, search database for our growing collection of images. As you can see there are numerous methods to search, and categories to browse. If you have questions about how to find specific images, please contact us by email ( or phone (831-624-8600). We’re easy to talk with and always happy to help.
