How do I see and manage my search results?

Popsync image search results automatically appear on the results page. Use the search bar to search for the images. From your search results, hover over an image to add it to your collection. Once you’ve added images to your collection, place them into a workspace by selecting View collection.

Note: Search criteria for each provider are slightly different. So, you may see non-relevant images based on your selected image provider(s).

How do I save my search results?

Search results appear in a Bluescape workspace. When you search from an existing workspace, all results are saved in real time, whereas when you create a new workspace or begin your search from, you must save your workspace to keep or share your results. This can be found at the top right corner of your workspace. You must log in to Bluescape or create an account to save your results.

What is link-out attribution?

Popsync provides a link to an image’s source. For Unsplash search results, when you select the link at the bottom of the image, you are taken to the artist’s Unsplash page, where you can easily view more of their work.

For other search engines, for example, Bing Images, the link at the bottom of the image takes you to the image’s source page.

Can I exclude offensive content?

By default, Popsync image search results omit potentially upsetting content regardless of whether the keyword was intentionally searching for the upsetting content. To modify this setting, select :more_options: (Filters) and toggle off Exclude offensive content.
