Why is my photo not showing up in search with the location that I gave when I uploaded it?

Unfortunately, not all of the photos submitted to Unsplash end up being directly searchable through the current search. The search feature searches photos that appear in the 'New' and 'Featured' feeds—which are curated by the Unsplash editorial team, who look for a few specific things, including composition, colour, and subject. However, all photos that meet our guidelines will appear on your profile and in Collections.


Occasionally a photo might not keep all the tags that were given upon upload, and this might also be a reason that your photo is not being discoverable by certain search terms.
