Default Why isn't my image coming up in TE search?

Hi, I just joined TE. Seems like a great site. I posted my first image, but am wondering why it isn't coming up in the search. I don't really see the point of posting here, if my images cannot be found via the search or seen.
Can someone enlighten me? Do the images need to have a certain # of points first to show up in the search or something?
Thanks in advance.

That's not what I mean. I know how to find my image when I am signed in. What I am having a problem with is, when I type it in the site search, it does not come up in the results. Are new images not searchable? If so, I don't see the point of posting here if it can't be found via the search feature. It will never be seen.

As I understand the TE portal the database for the picture works with index files or lists. These list are not updated online, some list are updated after hours, some only daily.
You have these effects on the counter for your green points, sometimes the number of your picture, ...
Best wishes,
Achim

Reading at this thread , I've tried the SEARCH possibility on TE , for the first time , today :) . But what does it mean exactly ? And how does it work ? If you write a name of a place , you don't obtain all the pictures of this place , and sometimes , a picture that nothing to do with the search . MAy be I've not all understood .
Thanks for your answers .
Denis

I suspect the reason the image in question isn't being seen yet is down to how often the database is updated. On the wider point of which images appear when a search is run - you need to put the search criteria into quotes if it is more than a single word otherwise it will search for any of the words instead of all the words e.g. "Bow Lake" will only find images for that location whereas Bow Lake without the quotes will return every entry with Bow or Lake in the title or notes.

Hello
I made a test with the title of a picture posted several days ago : iyt didn't appear.
I really dont know how it work.

But personnaly I never used this way to find picture : I use either location either author , or theme.

Sorry to not be able to help more.
