If you want run a search for cars and NOT icons.

Just write on search box CARS, NOT ICONS

Very useful, thanks.

My next wish. It seems that not every new accepted file has a chance to appear in the Latest Uploads page while I see a row of icons just from one designer. Don't you think it is redundant? Sorry my english I hope you get the point. Thanks again.

Hi ganjarelex, your English is just fine

All new files do appear in the 'Newest Uploads', however there are two separate inspection Queues, one for Exclusives and one for non-Exclusives. The Exclusive Q gets priority inspections so they are generally inspected before the non-Exclusive Q. There is also a delay from when a file is approved to when it appears on that page so they don't show immediately.

Files are inspected as they come in and contributors usually submit series of files in a batch, so this is why they appear together on the homepage.

Hopefully this helps.

Edited to add: Going back to your original question, there is a (huge) list of search tips on this page that might be helpful too

Thanks Jenn, really helpful. From the first time I do want to be an exclusive contributor here in Istockphoto. I'm still in the long journey to pass the minimum requirement.
