2:3 aspect ratio images appearing in [Pan] searches.

Recommended Posts

Has it always been the case that 2:3 aspect ratio images are returned in Alamy searches with the Panoramic [Pan] filter set?

 

Seems a bit strange to me. Surely 2:3 format should be categorised as Landscape, but not Panoramic? Panoramic seems like a pointless filter if it includes 2:3 images and so isn't helping customers find what they are looking for...

I reckoned that 2:1 was the threshold when I last checked a few weeks ago, which would seem reasonable, must be a glitch.

Searching for "UK Landscape" with the Panoramic filter definitely doesn't bring up any 3:2

 

A quick scan through the results pages brings up this one as one of the least panoramic looking:

5107 x 2553 px or 2.00039:1!

I'm not seeing that either. All looks normal to me.

Oh I see what's happened. The filter the search used was [Land] [Pan] and is being (correctly) interpreted as Landscape OR Panoramic and not Landscape AND Panoramic.

My mistake, I'll go back to sleep. Sorry for troubling you.
