Welcome to Swedish Match Image Bank! This guide includes all you need to know about how to use the Image Bank.
Search in the left column is a simplified search. Enter your search phrase in the text field and it will search for that phrase in keywords, descriptions, titles and categories. Choose Media Type if you only want to search within images or videos.
You may specify your search further by using year, photographer and media type fields.
When you have searched for images, a search result is shown. There you can choose to view the detailed view or the thumb view by the buttons on the top right of the search result. The detailed view contains more information about the images, e.g. photographer, year and dimension. The thumb view only shows the title and the image thumbnail, with the advantage that it gives a faster overview of the search result.
Clicking on an image opens a preview of that image along with the information about it.
You have also the opportunity to share an image with others or retrieve an embedding code.
There are two ways to download images in the Image Bank – download one direct from the search results, or add images to a download folder to get them in a zip-file.
In the search result, there is an option to download a web version or a print version of the image. The web version is a smaller image, often enough to use on the web. The print version is the larger, original file.
You can find the images in your download folder by clicking on the folder icon on the top of the page. In the download folder you can remove images, choose version to download (print or web) and download all by clicking “Download images”. That creates a zip file with all the images. The option “Compare images” opens small versions of the images that can be moved around, to compare them easily.
You have the option to share the images that you have added to your download folder. Press the share button and fill in the recipients e-mail address and click send. The recipient will then receive e-mail with a link to the folder.
You can use an image on a website by copying and pasting the code generated by the embed function. Make sure that you read the copyright information first.
