Search Options

Once you arrive at the homepage of the Media Site, you will find a number of different search options available to you. Amongst these are items which are available to download. Descriptions of these items are as follows:



Using ‘Your Archive’

What is an Archive?

An ‘archive’ is a personalised folder. It allows you to organise your selected media items according to individual projects or articles you wish to use the items for. You can create as many or as few Archives as you like, however, you only have immediate access to the most recent.

Add a new Archive

You can add a new Archive by clicking on the arrow to the bottom right of any image and typing in a title of your choice. Clicking the ‘add’ button will save the archive and add the chosen item to it.

Past Archives

To look at Past Archives, please select ‘More Archives’ in the ‘Your Archive’ drop down menu featured in the top banner. You will be able to access all archives created in your account here.

Rename Archive

To rename an Archive, follow the steps in the Past Archive section and click ‘See More’ on the Archive you wish to alter. Once open, you will see a ‘Rename’ option in the top right hand corner. Click on this icon to reveal a text box. Type in the new title you wish to use and click the rename icon again. A green box will appear in the bottom right of the screen to confirm that your change has been made.

Delete Archive

To delete an Archive, follow the steps above in the Past Archive section and click ‘See More’ on the Archive you wish to delete. Once open, you will see a ‘Delete’ option in the top right hand corner. Click to permanently delete this folder and the media items within.

Add media items to an Archive

Adding media items to an Archive couldn’t be easier! Find the item you would like to download, click on the arrow to the bottom right of the media item and a drop down menu will appear. Find the Archive you wish to add it to and click on the title. A green message will pop up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen to confirm that this item has been added to your selected article. If the item has already been added to the archive, an orange alert will warn you accordingly. Once you have added an item to an Archive, the default Archive at the bottom of each image will change to that title with a + sign to the left. This will save you time should you wish to add more media items to the same Archive. Just click on this button to continue adding items.

Download media items within an Archive

Once you have selected and added your chosen media items to an Archive, you can download its entire contents by following the steps provided in the Past Archive Section above. Once ‘Your Archive’ opens, select ‘Download’ on the Archive you wish to download. The items will begin to download into a ZIP file for you. If your archive contains a high volume of items, it may take several minutes to prepare the download, but feel free to continue browsing the site whilst this is being processed.


Should you wish to simply download a single item, click on the download icon to the bottom left. This will automatically start a download for you.
