Abstract: The objective of this study is to investigate photo editors’ search tactics and moves during their searching for images. This study involves 30 photo editors from newspaper and magazine companies using the Associated Press Photo Archive Database to retrieve specific, general, and subjective photos. The results show that task type affected the choice of which tactics and moves to employ. More subjective tasks lead to more complex moves. Browse, enlarge/caption, enlarge, alter, and caption were top five common tactics used across the three searches. The results indicate that image searching is an intensively visual activity and browsing is the key move for image searching. This study suggests that a more responsive and powerful interface should be implemented to allow searchers to have more control when querying and using browsing features.
