Steps

  1. The user chooses to execute a search.

Smaller numbers will be handled with one (for double-digit numbers) or two (single-digit numbers) zeros are in front of them (e.g. 12 will be handled as 012). To search for several ids, its valid to separate the numbers via a semicolon.
    For the age range only double-digit numbers are valid values.
    The search criteria will be combined within one attribute through the boolean operator OR (e.g. anger or happiness) and within the different attributes through the boolean operator AND (e.g. young and happiness).
  5. The system searches for the defined search criteria and creates a search result containing all pictures visible to the user according to his privileges (logged in or not).
