Part 2: - How To Search Tutorials on Pixel2Life

Pixel2life has over 24,000 tutorials over 21,000 of those are live viewable and searchable to the public, every graphic, web designer and coder should have Pixel2Life as their first stop place for searching a specific tutorial we're sure to have what your looking for even if it's how to get breast enlargements lol yes we even have that. :P If not post in our tutorial requests forum and we'll be sure to find you an alternative or one of the members will write a tutorial for you.

Pixel2Life uses Boolean Search methods.

What is a Boolean search?
Boolean searching allows you to narrow down your search by using special terms before your keywords.
It's very useful because it can help you make sure you don't get 1,000's  of results when you search.
It came from George Boole back in the 1800's
if you wish to go into indepth detail you can read more from wikipedia

With Boolean searching you use the following:
Boolean term                                                Why?
AND                                                               To make sure a keyword is included
AND NOT (ANDNOT, NOT)                                 To make sure a keyword is not included
OR                                                                 To give alternative keywords

But how do we find what we're looking for? Quite easy actually even if you have never used it before, just type in your keywords:- example: sig banner (under photoshop) will bring up 5 pages of sig banner and assorted banner tutorials

Please Note: This is completely seperate from our Forum Search and will NOT show results on tutorials from the Forums.

As you can see quite the selection choice so your searching has already been simplified for you. All of our tutorials are checked whilst they're in the pending queue and tutorial titles and descriptions changed so searching is made even easier for you. Dead tutorials are removed weekly to keep our database as up todate as it can be.

If you come across a tutorial that's not working please use our report

Did you know that you can now install a Pixel2Life Search Box on your own website so that you and your users can search the Pixel2Life Database direct from your website?

1. Make sure you are a member of Pixel2Life. If your not a member the signup is free and you can do this here

2. Make sure you have a developer key! A Pixel2Life Developer Key gives you access to all our current and upcoming API developer tools, so if you haven't got one, register your key HERE!

4. Paste the code into your webpage and you're done! You can style the form further if desired with CSS etc and if you have any problems post in our Site Support Forum.
