Advanced Search is a great way for you to find photos using a variety of filters. You can go straight to advanced search without a search term here: http://www.flickr.com/search/advanced or click Advanced after searching:
Your photos will be displayed separately from people you follow and everyone’s photos:
- To view all photos that match, click on View all on the right side of the page:

- Click Clear to reset your search:
- Color - Use the color picker to show photos with a specific color, patterns or shallow depth of field.
- Orientation - Pick from portrait, landscape, square, and panorama.
- Minimum size - Pick the smallest size you want to see.
- Date - Search photos by when they were taken or uploaded.

You can also change your search from Date Taken to Date Uploaded:
You can use the date search in tandem with a text search to find the photo you’re looking for. For example, we searched for photos of “fish” within a certain time frame:
