Recent changes in August, 2019

Hey guys,

In August, we've had some updates at our group sites.

Website performance is improved

Website loading performance is really important for user experience. We have worked on it and tried to improve as much as we can. The first visit may take a few seconds to load, but subsequent visits will load the site much faster. Hope you enjoy browsing photos on our sites.

Some users have the needs to update some information on payment invoice, such as name, address. So we added a feature to allow users to update these information. You can check it out at My Subscription page.

Profile page of creators

Users also look for profile page of creators. We added these pages. You can browse more photos of your favorite creator.

New sites for China users

Previously, our sites load very slowly when accessing from China. To improve that situation, we have built new sites for China users. It's basically mirrored from original overseas site, except it's only in Chinese. The new sites are:

From overseas site, you can select Chinese language and you will be redirected to the new China sites.

Notice of research and development of AI materials.

Photo AC is currently conducting research and development on AI materials. We are working on the generation of the face of a non-existent person using an AI that applies deep learning technique called GAN (Generative Adversarial Network). There is a problem with the quality because it is under research, but you can still download it, so please check it from The merit of AI material is that it is impossible to withdraw the permission to use photos from the subject, which may occur when using real person material. Therefore, you can keep using the image stably. In the future, we will continue researching to increase the number of training data and generate stable high-quality images with larger resolution.

3. Search for specific content on ACworks’ free stock photos and vector graphics websites

On the websites provided by ACworks, you can use several methods to quickly find free stock photos, vector graphics, clipart, illustrations, videos, animations, and design templates that you need:

  • Search by keywords
  • Search by similar images
  • Filter and sort by popular images or recently updated images
  • Filter and exclude keyword search
  • Filter and sort by dimensions of the images: horizontal or vertical
  • Filter more by including or excluding categories
  • Filter and search by color
  • Filter and search by Creator’s name, Images’ title & ID
Search by keyword

Searching by keywords is a search function that is available on every of ACworks’ free websites: stock photos, vector graphics, clipart, illustrations, videos, animations. The search bar is displayed right on the top of the page and kept there when users move to other pages or scroll a page down. Since creators always add tags to the content submitted to ACworks, search by keywords will help users to find the images with related tags. To refine the search results, users can also search by images or filter more.

Search by similar images

Searching for similar images is another useful function that users can take advantage of when looking at free stock photos, images, clipart, vector graphics on ACworks websites. Search by similar images can be found (1) on the search bar area on the top of the page or (2) right below the search results after entering a keyword to search for images.

  • (1) When you are trying to find free stock photos and vector graphics of the same kind, you simply click on the button “Search by image” in the search bar area, upload an image and wait for the results. The uploaded images should be smaller than 5MB. Some of these illustrations/vectors are from the same photographer, while others are not. If you can't find the perfect illustration at the moment, why not click on a vector that comes closest to the ideal? Maybe it contains even better recommendations! These similar compositions and styles may also be the key to inspire your creativity.
  • (2) When you try to view the search results page, the Similar Images sections will be displayed right below the search results. You can see similar photos, illustrations and silhouette vectors at the same time. These new categories of material also provide you with more options.
Filter and sort by popular images or recently updated images

To help users refine the search results more easily, we choose to present the search results according to the publishing time (Recently) and the number of downloads (Popular). If you want to get the latest material, choose sort by Recent. If you want to get the most downloaded content, choose sort by Popular.

Filter and exclude keyword search

To show you the maximum amount of material in the library, we have relaxed the precision of the search. This is why you may occasionally see material such as "people" or "fruit" under the keyword search page for "people." If you don't like such search results, you can use the [Exclude Keywords], also located in the Refine Search field, to exclude those you don't want to see. If you exclude the keywords "people" and "fruit" in the above case, you can search for targeted people clips with greater precision. This function supports the exclusion of plural keywords/words at the same time. But remember to separate them with commas.

Filter and sort by dimensions of the images: horizontal or vertical

Photos and vector graphics uploaded to ACworks platform vary in dimensions. You can optimize the search results by sorting by dimensions/ shapes. Simply click on Vertical or Horizontal to search for the images with the right dimensions you want.

Filter more by including or excluding categories

To show you the maximum amount of material in the library, we have relaxed the precision of the search. This is why you may occasionally see material such as "people" or "fruit" under the keyword search page for "people." If you don't like such search results, you can use category filter function, which is also located within the Filter area. This function supports the inclusion and exclusion of plural categories at the same time. You can always adjust them as you wish.

Filter and search by color

Usually, color is not as helpful for vector image search as one might think ---- After all, most objects in human society are colorable. However, it is not so absolute (or even very useful) when searching for the category of people. After all, a part of the characters' fur color is even fixed. By searching by color, it is easy to limit the display of search results. In addition, you can also use this feature when looking for illustrations/vector images of people in colors that match the article or website.

Filter and search by Creator’s name, Images’ title & ID

Other filter functions you can take advantage of are filter by Creator’s name, images’ titles and IDs. If you are fans of specific creators or you are creators and you want to check how your submitted contents are displayed and downloaded on our sites, you can enter the name of creators to the filter and start searching. The same process is for the image's title and ID.

Search by Creator’s name is also useful for people who want to look for contents from ACworks creator to obtain extra licenses.

4. Edit graphic content on ACworks’ free stock photos and vector graphics websites

You want to edit an image but don't have any image editor on your devices? Think it's a hassle to download and then import the downloaded content to other tools to edit? On photoAC, illustAC, and silhouetteAC, you won't have the chance to experience such troubles! For each photo and vector graphic image on our sites, we have set an edit button. Even if you don't go to the download screen of each illustration, you can click the edit button that appears when the cursor hovers over the image thumbnail. After selecting the size that you want to edit, you will automatically jump to the free editing tool editorAC of ACworks (available in Chinese orthographic version). After the jump is complete, you do not need to run any additional operations, and the selected material will be automatically loaded on the canvas for you to edit directly. All the necessary functions for image processing are available, from reversing/aligning vector images, cropping by shape, adding text, to drawing diagrams and collaborative editing by multiple people. And the most important thing: all these are free!

5. Usages guides and licenses of the content
