searching "out" "off" "on" return millions of images now;

thought previously "off" didn't ???!  or did it...?

"the" & some others still return 0 images;

has Alamy ever provided list of search-insensitive words?

I don't know about a list, but as noted in a different thread, a search on people make Glasgow (the city slogan) returns as many hits as people Glasgow, so 'make' must be ignored. Unfortunate for people searching for uses of the slogan, (which has been searched on).

It works if people search for "people make Glasgow" in quotes though....

Yes, sorry, that has somehow been truncated. I said that (where did it go), but also remarked that by looking at my searches I see that very few buyers seem to search in quotes. Even if Alamy doesn't encourage them to do that (why not?) you'd think from general search behaviour people would try that.

Thanks.
